Spring gardening program focuses on Growing Green in a Changing Climate

Even as winter tries to linger on in this region, northland gardeners are getting anxious to get growing. Gardening enthusiasts with the University of Minnesota and St. Louis County Extension are getting excited, too, and will be presenting a spring gardening workshop "Growing Green in a Changing Climbing" on Tuesday, April 12. The educational workshop will be offered 1-4:30 p.m., at the Mt. Iron Community Center, 8586 Enterprise Drive in Mt. Iron.


Speakers from the University of Minnesota, St. Louis County and a local greenhouse will share research-based information on how gardeners can apply knowledge to grow resilient and successful gardens. The program will also feature new content on growing tomatoes, and recent research on growing colored roasting peppers.


The cost to attend is $25, which includes refreshments and resource materials. All participants will receive the 2022 vegetable variety list, top ten tomato list and materials on growing resiliently.


Advance registration is required to ensure adequate space and materials. Registration can be done online at z.umn.edu/SLCGarden, by calling 218-749-7120, or by mailing a $25 check payable to St. Louis County to:  SLC Extension, Virginia GSC, 201 S 3rd Ave. W., Virginia, MN  55792.
