[ARCHIVED] It's Not Too Early to Think of Spring

Learn about native gardens, raingardens, and native plant shorelines at a Blue Thumb workshop and start spring early. Follow the link to find out more…

Dakota County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) will be offering “An Introduction to Planting for Clean Water” workshops this spring. Workshops are scheduled in Apple Valley for the evenings of February 19 and April 7; however, Apple Valley residents are welcome to attend any of the workshops offered throughout the county.

Blue Thumb workshops focus on native gardens, raingardens, and native plant shoreline stabilizations. Participants will see lots of beautiful examples installed by local residents while learning about how they benefit the environment. Attendees will also be invited to attend more in-depth design workshops where they will be offered the chance to apply for installation grants.

This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to install a new garden and enhance their yard. With a few careful tweaks, you can have a great looking garden that is good for the environment and grant eligible.

To register for this free workshop, contact the SWCD at 651-480-7777 or visit their web site at Vist to learn more about planting for clean water.
