What is Minnesota Green?

A signature community outreach program of the hort society, Minnesota Green cultivates public green spaces and promotes community gardening, connecting people and helping neighbors grow healthy food.


How does it work?

Garden centers, greenhouses, landscape nurseries and individuals donate plants, seeds, gardening tools and supplies. We distribute those donations to community and public gardens, making our state greener!
