The Minnesota State Horticultural Society (MSHS) has been cultivating cold-climate gardeners for over 150 years through access to gardening resources, community engagement, educational programs and the award-winning magazine Northern Gardener.
Since 1988, the MSHS program Minnesota Green has served the greening efforts of volunteer gardeners throughout the Twin Cities and the region. Minnesota Green distributes donated seeds, plants and gardening tools and supplies to community gardens and public green spaces. With its support, gardeners are able to beautify their neighborhoods, grow their own healthy food, and strengthen their communities.
Started in 2008, the Garden-in-a-Box program was created by MSHS to teach vegetable gardening to kids so they could learn where their food comes from and make healthier food choices. MSHS distributes vegetable gardening kits and offers educational opportunities to community groups serving low-income and at-risk children and families. Garden-in-a-Box reaches participants throughout the state of Minnesota.
