Neighborhood Projects

Metro Blooms is working in a neighborhood near you! In partnership with community organizations, citizens, and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota we have installed hundreds of raingardens throughout more than 20 neighborhoods in the metro area. Metro Blooms is also working with neighbors along alleyways to create pedestrian-friendly community spaces that provide healthy habitat and protect our clean water.

Raingarden Workshops
