Now is a great time to begin planning a stunning new garden for your yard. To help you get started, Dakota County Soil and Water Conservation District will be holding Landscaping for Clean Water workshops on native gardens, raingardens, and shoreline stabilization using native plants. Workshops in Apple Valley are scheduled for February 28 and April 11, and other opportunities are available throughout the County this spring.
Here is what you can expect to learn at the workshop:
This is a terrific opportunity to learn about garden planning from the experts. Whether you are interested in finding out about site design, plant selection, raingardens, or adding native plants to your landscape, this workshop is the best place to get started. And you don't have to live on water to take advantage of this fantastic program.
Grants may be available for some projects. You can learn more about the Landscaping for Clean Water program from the Dakota County SWCD.
