Planting for the future

Volunteers planted native and non-native perennials in new, street-side Raingardens along Hackmore Drive near Schwanz Lake on rainy Saturday morning. Eagan's "Lakes & Wetlands Program" provided plants, materials and funding for these newest of 25 neighborhood plantings to filter runoff for cleaner city lakes. For more info, call Gregg at 651-675-5395.

  2. It's good to include children; get them started on the right foot. I've noted that kids really dig garden work and are pleased with watching the growth of plants and animals.

  12. Good work. We do a lot of community planting here in Perth too, especially along the coast to keep the sand dunes from eroding.

  16. This is such a great initiative. Where I live in Montpellier, people should do the same. Kids here do not respect plants and trees at all.
