Washburn Tot Lot Pollinator Garden

Washburn Tot Lot Pollinator Garden

The ANA is so excited to announce that the neighborhood has received grant funding from the State of Minnesota’s Lawns to Legumes Neighborhood Demonstration Program and the Minneapolis People for Parks Foundation to fund a pollinator garden at the Washburn Tot Lot!

The new garden will be installed along the alley to provide a safe, beautiful barrier that will benefit our local pollinators.


Community Input

Thanks to everyone who gave input at our Fall Fun event on Sept 17! We got so many great ideas on plants and design elements. Missed sharing your ideas? Please email us at anacoordinator@armatage.org


Next Steps

Our project partner, Metro Blooms, will create a draft design that incorporates community input this winter. The new garden will be installed in May 2023. We’ll have volunteer planting and watering opportunities to share, too!
