Lawns to Legumes Program

Lawns to Legumes received an Environmental Initiative Award! We worked with many partners on this program, which comes through the Board of Water and Soil Resources, to support Minnesotans to plant for pollinators in their yards, and are proud to be part of this effort.

Lawns to Legumes cost-share grant recipients who have not yet submitted their projects can sign up FREE for a Blue Thumb fall workshop, starting in August. If you missed our notification on how to do this, send an email: info@bluethumb.org 


We have made some changes on how we work due to the pandemic.
