Heritage Garden project welcomes volunteers for June 5 and 6

In an effort to beat the rain forecast, organizers for the Heritage Garden, a new public garden in Woodlawn Park, have changed the timing for primary planting of the site to Friday, June 5, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Placement of pre-donated plants from community members will be done on Saturday, June 6, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Volunteers interested in helping to plant at the garden are asked to bring their own trowels, gloves and shovels. For details, email HeritageGardenMoorhead@gmail.com, or call Su Legatt at 218-329-4950. The site is located at the east edge of the park at 400 Woodlawn Drive in south Moorhead.

The garden is designed by artists Su Legatt, Rob Fischer, and Kevin Johnson, who are working closely with Plains Art Museum, the City of Moorhead, Moorhead Public Service, and community volunteers.
