“MSHS is an organization that does so much good—has programs that make a real sustainable difference. Anyone who has even the smallest level of involvement knows the importance of the organization—it needs support. MSHS is the place to go for all things gardening!”
-Erin George, donor since 2000.
“I contribute to MSHS because it’s a wonderful educational institution— and a long-standing one. MSHS is the most broad-based gardening organization we have in Minnesota, so a lot of people can learn, whether they’re a new or a veteran gardener.”
-Ralph & Loanne Thrane, Heirloom Circle members and donors since 1969.
