Learn how to install and maintain prairie gardens at two new landscaping classes – Prairie Gardens Install and Prairie Gardens Maintenance.  Taught by Ben Wood, a local environmental expert and organic farmer,  these classes will teach you how prairie gardens not only provide  much-needed habitat for wildlife and help restore and sustain the  environment, they also protect buildings and structures by reducing air  pollution and providing moisture control, both of which can cause  significant damage. Learn how prairie gardens can enhance the beauty and  function of your property.

Prairie Gardens Install takes place  June 11th, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Jodon House (213 Northeast 2nd  Street) in Little Falls. This Greek Revival-style home was built in 1858  by Dr. Zachariah Jodon, a doctor and carpenter, and his wife, Sarah. A  local landmark, the house is the oldest still standing in the community.  This hands-on class will teach you how to establish a prairie garden at  your own home or property, including soil preparation, seed and  seedling planting, and early maintenance. Learn how to select the right  plants for your site and how to prep the ground for the best possible  outcome.

Join Ben for one or more of these new classes and learn about the integral role healthy landscapes play in preservation.

This class is brought to you by Rethos: Places  Reimagined. The Rethos Education program is funded in part by the State  of Minnesota from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the  Minnesota Historical Society.
