Plant Shares

Fall Plant Share
Saturday, September 23

127 Amherst Street

9:00 - Noon

Share your extra perennials, fruit bushes, and vegetable starts with other neighborhood gardeners! These popular exchanges are a great way to pick up new plants to diversity your garden while giving your divided perennials, fruit bushes, and extra vegetable starts a good home. The plant share is designed to be an exchange, though we suggest a $2 per plant minimum donation if you do not have plants to bring. 

This fall we will also host a seed swap at the fall plant share! Ask questions, pick up seeds, and/or bring some of your own to share.

Community Solar in Mac-Grove

Mac-Grove residents now have access to solar and savings on monthly electricity bills - without installing solar at their own homes.

Through community solar gardens, neighbors join together to purchase their electricity at a discount through a large solar array (3 to 5 acres.) Participating households will save 10% on their electricity bills. Twin Cities neighborhoods are teaming up with the Alliance for Sustainability to sign up 500 neighbors to join a community solar garden with MN Community Solar.
