Mini-Forest Planting

Saturday, May 18, 9 AM to 1 PM

Our Village Community Garden (777 Milton Avenue at Pierce Butler Route)

Help plant Frogtown's first "mini-forest," a super-dense planting of native trees and shrubs that accelerates natural succession, resulting in more habitat and tree canopy in a shorter time. Join us for an hour or two, or stay for lunch and a celebration, but sign up here, so we know how much food and how many tools to bring!

Birds and Bees Sketch Fest

Saturday, May 18, noon to 3 PM

Frogtown Park & Farm (top of the hill)

Join urban sketchers to watch and draw birds and insects. Family friendly, all skill levels welcome. Bring your own art materials or use the ones that we will supply. Co-hosted with the St Paul chapter of the Audubon Society.
