Last Wednesday Metro Blooms’ Rock for Raingardens event took place at the Fine Line Cafe in downtown Minneapolis. Metro Blooms board members and staff, friends of the bands, landscape design assistants and Metro Blooms supporters were all in attendance as Hypoxic Punks, Wild Cathedral and Postina entertained us with their upbeat and dance worthy music (and dance we did, which Barb made sure of).
The event doubles as a fundraiser for Metro Blooms and a recognition event for the landscape design assistants that Metro Blooms hires during raingarden workshop season. Design assistants in attendance were given the honor of receiving an “award” from Metro Blooms’ landscape architect Bryan Pynn. Examples of these highly descriptive awards include the “Scooby Doo” award and the “Foreigner” award. Confused? You’ll have to join us next year as we’ll undoubtedly continue the tradition of this entertaining recognition. If you’re looking for some more photos of the bands and attendees cutting the rug check out our Facebook page. Until next time, rock on.
