Master Gardeners in Washington County will present a free Landscape Workshop on Saturday, March 29 from 8 a.m. until noon at Woodbury City Hall in the City Council Chambers on the second floor. The public is invited to attend to enjoy presentations on popular topics for the home landscape, as well as the opportunity to talk one-on-one about their own gardens with trained U of M Extension Master Gardeners. Coffee and donuts will be available.
The Landscape Workshop features three 45-minute educational presentations to help attendees improve the appeal and sustainability of their home landscapes:
- Importance and Secrets of Pollination - How to choose plants not only for their beauty, but also to attract bees and other pollinators that play a critical role in growing flowers, fruits, and some vegetables, by special guest presenter JoAnne Sabin, a beekeeper, gardening educator, and Master Gardener from Dakota County.
- Ornamental Grasses - How to use them in Minnesota landscapes to create interest in all seasons, by Marge Sagstetter, a Washington County Master Gardener and Tree Care Advisor from Lake Elmo.
- Water Quality and Rain Gardens - How to beautify a yard and capture runoff so it can be used by plants rather than going to waste in the sewer system, by Tom Nelson, a Washington County Master Gardener and Woodbury resident.
