Recognizing Great Gardens - Blooming St Paul


Big thanks to everyone who helped with BSP neighborhood walks in July

Neighborhood Walks

Thanks to Pam Baribeau, Sylvia Cuellar, Emily Flagstad, Matt Haney, Sarah Kruger Hilger, Mary McCarron, Sandy McDonald, Linda Minter, Tami Noblet, Shari Pleiss, Sue Stein, Amanda Swanson and Stacey Tidball for participating in the city-led neighborhood walks last month!

Park staff scheduled these Blooming St Paul neighborhood nomination walks in each of the seven districts to have city-wide representation. The goal was to attract community members and get them involved. The neighborhood nomination walks were about one hour long. At each nominated location, RCMG volunteers left educational material and a stake for the gardener-in-residence.

Photography & Recognition

Many thanks to Pam Baribeau, Michael Erb, Nancy Glass, Sharon Hardy, Chris Kraft, Mindy Johnson, Deborah O'Halloran, Jeni Raddatz Tolifson, Sue Stein, DeAnn Strenke, Laurel Watt & Rena Wiltfang-Roepke for volunteering to follow-up with reviewing online nominations in August and early September.
