On Saturday, May 16, the co-op’s general manager, Luke Schell, attended the Blooms Day Recognition and Educational Event at Kenny School to accept the award for “Best Container Gardens” for 2008! We’re thrilled, of course, and need to share the award with Bob and his crew from Edelweiss Design, who help ensure our container gardens and courtyard and parking lot plantings are beautiful, sustainable, and well-maintained.
Metro Blooms is dedicated to promoting and celebrating gardening as a way to beautify communities and protect the environment. Linden Hills Co-op was nominated along with 1,900 other gardens, so the field was extremely competitive. For more information on Metro Blooms, visit their website.
