After a summer of renovation, the Trinity Healing Garden and Labyrinth has become the latest education site for Dakota County Master Gardeners. Not only a site for healing and therapy , the garden is now ready to host seed trials for annuals, and is the site of 5 educational presentations, this summer and fall. Check out the community events page for information on the presentations. Look for the “Ask a Master Gardener” table at Dew Days, for demonstrations during the Educational Garden Tour and for lots of opportunity to just “stroll with your soul” on the labyrinth. Master Gardeners are connecting with the residents at the Care Center facilities, but also hoping to increase public use of the garden. It is free, open during daylight hours and is a great amenity to the greater community. For more information check out the trinity garden website.

More than 500 people stopped by at local expos to learn more about pollinators and to ask other gardening questions. Dakota County Master Gardeners focused on pollinators as apart of the year of the pollinator theme. If you missed the local expos please take a look at the Minnesota Bee Lab site for more information on plants for Minnesota bees.
