Each garden offers a unique opportunity to learn about the latest trends and techniques—with educational topics such as garden design, gardening for and with wildlife, and urban farming—all backed by university-based research.

With special focus on pollinators for 2023, the Hennepin County Master Gardener Volunteer Learning Garden Tour encourages you to help native and other pollinators thrive at home and in community spaces. Come learn gardening techniques that benefit butterflies, dragonflies, wasps, and more.

Tour features include:

• A chance to get trusted, reliable information when you chat with Hennepin County Master Gardener volunteers about your specific questions or concerns.
