Adopt-A-Garden big hit at State Fair

Fair-goers enjoyed the 75-foot Adopt-A-Garden installed by Anoka Technical College the West End Market at the Minnesota State Fair this year.

With the help of students, Horticulture instructors Amy Moberg and Travis Gienger installed a table and bird bath, provided by Waterstone; a patio, walls and edging, donated by Borgert, Inc.; mulch, donated by Best Outdoor Landscapes; plant material, provided by Green Valley Greenhouse; and mailbox and pain for the wooden box for brochures, donated by Out of the Blue.

“It was such a collaborative effort,” said Moberg who will continue to tend the garden through the growing season. “We could not have done it without fantastic volunteers who problem solved and provided great feedback to lessen our steep learning curve, and the students who helped install the landscape.”
