Arboretum's 2010 Exhibit to be Displayed on St. Paul Campus

| Leave a comment

The Arboretum's 2010 exhibit "Powerhouse Plants: Veggies By The Yard" will be on campus this year. Five designs have been created by Arboretum gardener Ted Pew, and will be on exhibit to encourage the home gardener to make space for some healthy, delicious vegetables in their gardens.

Master Gardeners will be planting all five designs in front of the Plant Growth Facilities Building on the St. Paul campus. Once a week throughout the season, they will harvest the vegetables, weigh and measure the produce, and blog about their successes and challenges on the Veggies By The Yard blog. In addition to the campus site, twelve other Master Gardener groups throughout Minnesota will also be planting one or more of the planting designs and blogging about their experiences. For more information contact Julie Weisenhorn.
