Adopt-a-Garden: Hennepin Technical College

Two locations: In front of the Grandstand, east of the ramp, near the sidewalk crossing in the park, this garden features hardy pine, birch and oak trees, as well as tiger eye sumac. The naturalized area includes a combination of native and exotic perennials such as black-eyed susans, culver’s root, gallardia, silphium, fall garden mums and little bluestem that are drought and heat tolerant. Have a seat and beat the heat under the trees in the midst of the fair experience. A second garden is located on Underwood Street on the west side of the Agriculture Horticulture Building. With a six-foot rock wall and a meandering dry stream as a backdrop, this creative garden features a wide variety of colorful annuals, perennials, shrubs and trees. Other landscape features include an aspen grove, an environmentally friendly irrigation system, and a superior granite staircase and walking path. Gardens are planted and maintained by Hennepin Technical College’s Professional Gardening class. Presented by Hennepin Technical College,
