Meadowbrook Monday: Grow One Keep One Prep

March 11 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT

Help us kickoff the popular Grow One, Keep One program for 2024!

As our recent series of seed cleaning workdays have  illustrated, native plant propagation is one of the most important aspects of stewardship at Shirley Heinze. On March 11th, we’ll start preparing the donated milk jugs for planting and getting other materials relating to the program ready. The seedlings will be used to promote native plant diversity and climate resiliency at Meadowbrook Nature Preserve and in your back yard!

Volunteer Jenny Dimitroff stands with seeds she collected from Meadowbrook’s native garden this past fall. Some of these seeds will be used in this year’s Grow One Keep One program.

We may be working both indoors and outside, so make sure to keep an eye on the weather forecast for the morning and dress accordingly, just in case. We’ll provide any necessary tools or gear, light snacks, and water. As always, we encourage you to bring your own reusable water bottle!

So that we can best plan for Meadowbrook Monday, please RSVP through the website form below. Question? Call the office at 219-242-8558 or email
