Description:

This workshop offers planting practices that benefit pollinators and the environment. Learn about the current health status of pollinators in Minnesota, and how you can help them by installing pocket plantings, trees and shrubs, bee lawns, pollinator meadows, and more! The content is based on the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources’ Lawns to Legumes program supporting residents to create more pollinator-friendly landscapes.

This workshop is a pre-recorded video you will receive at least a week ahead of the event. The first 30 minutes of the workshop is a general Q&A, and then registrants will be split into small breakout sessions to take turns discussing their own yard with expert landscape designers and Master Gardeners.
