[ARCHIVED] Making your Garden Grow


Join us for two free classes to get the most from your yard. On October 8, learn how to create a beautifully landscaped yard that will provide a bounty of fresh fruits and on October 22 come learn about pollinators.

Yardscaping with Fruit – Apples, Berries, Cherries, and More
Saturday, October 8
10:00 to noon
Harriet Alexander Nature Center
2520 Dale St. North, Roseville

Edible Landscaping is made up of several tiers of plants to take advantage of the production of food on your urban landscape. This class will focus on different cultivars and species of tree and shrubs that grow in Minnesota. Each of the plants will bear delicious fruits that can be eaten fresh or preserved.

This class is presented by Rebecca Koetter. Koetter has experience designing, selecting, implementing, harvesting and processing nearly every type of fruit that grows in Minnesota.

Classes are free but registration is requested. Register at

Saturday, October 22
10:00 to noon
Muriel Sahlin Arboretum
2525 Dale St. North, Roseville

Bees are vital to our state, national, and global food systems for their labor as pollinators. Since 2007, hives have suffered an unprecedented die-off in the United States due to a combination of higher stress, commercial pollination, mites and diseases, and the use of neonicotinoid pesticides

On October 22, learn about who Minnesota’s pollinators are, what's going on with them, and how individuals can help protect pollinators. Participants will safely observe a live honeybee hive, sample honey and build homes for wild bees.

This class is presented by Erin Rupp, Executive Director of Pollinate Minnesota, an education and advocacy organization that works with communities to promote education about bees and the catalysts they can be for systems change.

Classes are free but registration is requested. Register at

These classes are part of Roseville’s Edible Orchard Project. Earlier this year the City partnered with The Food Group, a non-profit organization that provides healthy foods and other resources to more than 200 hunger relief agencies in Minnesota. The Fruits of the City program provide free educational programs to encourage residents to grow and harvest their own local foods.
