Kenny Elementary School (SE Corner)
This year, Hennepin County Master Gardeners will continue their partnership with Kenny Elementary School to create a pollinator garden at the SE corner of the school and they are looking for Kenny neighbors to join the fun! This spring's Volunteer Kick-off will be on Saturday, April 23 at 1:00pm. Volunteers will get instructions, divide into teams, and get to work! If you enjoy gardening, want to learn about gardening, or just want to volunteer for a fun neighborhood project, this is a great opportunity to get involved. No prior gardening knowledge is needed.
Save the Date: the Master Gardeners' Garden Tour is on July 9 and will feature the Kenny Elementary Pollinator Garden! More information to follow on the garden tour in the near future.
