Rain Garden

Rain Garden Project!

4011182413_8bebd9cc22_bWe are pleased to let you know about this year’s Rain garden Project, a partnership between Cleveland Neighborhood Association and Metro Blooms. Metro Blooms is a non-profit organization that has worked for 30 years to strengthen communities by promoting environmentally sound landscaping that beautifies neighborhoods and protects our environment. Up to fifteen rain gardens will be installed in the Cleveland Neighborhood. The Raingarden Project will also involve workshops to help educate residential and commercial property owners on how to help keep our lakes, rivers and streams clean by simple changes in yard care choices. The workshops are designed to move participants quickly from an overview of healthy yard care practices to a completed raingarden design for their property with one-on-one assistance from Metro Blooms landscape designers and Hennepin County Master Gardeners. The Cleveland Neighborhood specific workshop is scheduled for Saturday, June 28th from 1pm-4pm and is FREE. Complete workshop details are outlined below.
