2018 Hennepin County MG Learning Garden Tour (152-07-14-18)
Saturday, July 14, 9 a.m.  - 4 p.m. Rain or Shine

The Hennepin County Master Gardeners’ annual Learning Garden Tour kicks off at 9 a.m. Saturday, July
14, 2018. Coordinated by volunteers with the University of Minnesota Extension Master Gardener
Program – Hennepin County, this year’s tour showcases nine gardens in Minneapolis and Richfield with
on-site gardening advice from dozens of trained Master Gardener Volunteers.

The annual event features unique home gardens designed and tended by Master Gardener Volunteers
who live in Hennepin County, as well as a community garden that began as a Victory Garden in 1943.
This year’s self-guided tour includes food trucks at select stops, a Book Nook with a variety of books for
kids and adults, and the Garden Shed, which offers fun and useful gardening accessories. Master
Gardener Volunteers will be on hand at each garden, conducting demonstrations at various education
stations covering topics such as hydroponics, native plants and composting.

Last year, a record-breaking 800-plus people attended the tour, which is accessible to visitors who arrive
on foot or by bike or car. “The Hennepin County Master Gardener Learning Garden Tour is an engaging
experience that’s open to everyone — whether you’re a gardener seeking a little inspiration, or a
horticultural tourist looking for an enjoyable way to spend the day,” said Tim Kenny, statewide director
of the University of Minnesota’s Extension Master Gardener Program.
