Cottage Grove: Blue Thumb - Planting for Clean Water Workshop

  • Cottage Grove City Hall 12800 Ravine Parkway South Cottage Grove, MN, 55016 United States (map)

Due to inclement weather we have rescheduled for Monday April 15th!

Learn how to transform your yard with native gardens, raingardens and turf alternatives that add beauty, provide habitat, and help to protect neighborhood ponds and the Mississippi River.  

During the workshop, our landscaping experts will share photos from local projects to inspire your creativity, and will help you practice sketching a landscape plan for your yard with tracing paper and an aerial photo.  In addition, you’ll learn about resources to help you get started, including:

·         Incentive grants for clean water planting projects

·         Free site visits

·         Garden designs and plant lists

·         Conservation plans for larger properties

This workshop is FREE but please pre-register so that we can provide an aerial photo of your property for the class.  

Hosted by City of Cottage Grove, South Washington Watershed District, and the East Metro Water Resource Education Program.
