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.
