Northland Arboretum's Spring Plant Sale
The Northland Arboretum with over 500 acres of green space between the cities of Brainerd and Baxter is the passion of three Crow Wing County Master Gardeners. They start the year out with planning and ordering for the annual May plant sale. In May of 2006 a total of 450 potted plants were donated by just one Master Gardener. Other Master Gardeners help with the plant sale, potting, labeling, and answering countless questions from the several hundred people who come to the annual event.

Field Trips
Crow Wing County Master Gardeners visited several private gardens in the area as well as public gardens outside the county such as the Munsinger-Clemens Gardens in St. Cloud and the Living Legacy Gardens in Staples in 2008, the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in Chaska in 2009, the North Central Research and Outreach Station in Grand Rapids in 2009 and the Duluth area in 2010.
