2023 Blue Thumb Resilient Yards Workshops are open!

Beautify your landscape while planting for clean water and pollinator habitat.

Resilient Yards workshops give participants the skills to create their own raingardens, native

plantings, pollinator habitat, and more. Use our free online learning series, register for a live virtual workshop, or do both! Your yard can be the change.

New this year, all registrants who sign up for a free online learning series or live workshop will be entered to receive a $350 Lawns to Legumes grant, supported by the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources.

Our workshops this year include new Resilient Shorelines, Resilient Yards, Pollinator Plantings, and Pollinator Lawns/Turf Alternatives. These workshops share information about earth-friendly actions home gardeners can take to protect clean water, create pollinator habitat, and mitigate the impact of extreme heat and flooding rains.

Live virtual workshops cost $15. Scholarships are available upon request, no questions asked. For more information and to register, visit or call ​651-699-2426​.


Blue Thumb is coordinated by Metro Blooms, a nonprofit that partners with communities to create resilient landscapes and foster clean watersheds, embracing the values of equity and inclusion to solve environmental challenges. Blue Thumb partners with the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources to manage individual support for the Lawns to Legumes program.
