Native Plant Weekend (May 6-7): Climate Change Solutions in Your Own Back Yard

Come celebrate Native Plant Weekend with Sunnyside Gardens!

Native Plants at Sunnyside Gardens

Come celebrate Native Plant Weekend with Sunnyside Gardens!

On Saturday May 6th, Minneapolis Community Ed is sponsoring an event on the Christmas tree lot across from Café Ceres with keynote speaker Heather Holm, a well-known biologist and award winning author. (Check out her book  Bee and Pollinator Books by Heather Holm – Attract, Observe and Identify Pollinators and Beneficial Insects with Native Plants (pollinatorsnativeplants.com) )

The event is called and will focus on “Climate Change Solutions in Your Own Back Yard” which are related to gardens/trees/soil/urban heat island and biodiversity. Leighton Whitney (11), co-steward of the pollinator garden in Waveland Triangle Park, and Felix Malcolm Manzoni (12), who has been on a regenerative land management journey for the past three years, are also participating in the event.

Sunnyside Gardens proudly supports plants, products and gardening actions that encourage climate change solutions. All weekend long (May 6-7), Sunnyside Gardens will be offering our native plant selections at 20% off to help encourage everyone to get a native plant in their landscape.

Improvements to our Native Plant Selection at Sunnyside Gardens: Based on customer interest & feedback, we are expanding our selection of native plants at Sunnyside, with 20 new varieties this season. Our team has also worked on improved signage on our perennial lot to help our customers locate and learn about the native plant selection.
