Veterans Garden planted in Thief River Falls

| No Comments

The City of Thief River Falls approached Pennington County Master Gardeners to design a garden in an empty lot next to City Hall. A plan was developed for a sustainable perennial garden. Three eagle scouts took on this project. They named it the Veterans Memorial Garden and launched a fundraising effort that reached $15,000.00. What was initially planned to be just a sustainable perennial bed turned into a huge perennial garden with stone paths, a fence and statues of veterans. Master Gardeners assisted in plant selection and planting. It was a wonderful collaborative project involving over 50 people.
