Metro Blooms is coming to Waite Park

raingarden2.jpgGet ready for spring by planning a garden that beautifies your yard and helps keep our water clean, and you may be eligible for a FREE raingarden workshop.

"Metro Blooms has been partnering with Twin Cities Metro communities to provide low-cost raingarden workshops since 2005," said Metro Blooms Executive Director Becky Rice. "More than 5,000 residents have attended our workshops and over 2,000 raingardens have been installed." This spring, Metro Blooms will be working with Waite Park residents to beautify their yards while improving our environmental water quality. This April Metro Blooms will be hosting workshops at Waite Park to introduce the concept of a raingarden and help homeowners plan their own garden. The first  workshop is coming up in mid-April.
