Event description
It may be cold and snowy outside right now, but spring is not far away! Join us for Virtual Let's Get Growing 2021!

About this Event

Let’s Get Growing 2021 will be offered as a virtual event. Enhance your gardening knowledge through nine online classes all from the comfort of your home! Just like the in-person event, the virtual sessions will be taught by U of M Master Gardeners as well as horticulture professionals.

A new, exciting session will be held each Tuesday and Thursday in March starting at 6:30 PM and will last approximately one hour plus a live Q&A session to get your questions answered. Attend just one or all nine!

All classes will be FREE and are open to all interested gardeners. We invite you to make a donation of $25, but any amount is greatly appreciated if you are able to do so. Your donation will help support the many educational programs the Master Gardeners of Dakota County offer throughout our communities. Donations can be made by check or credit card.
