If you want to do your part to protect water right in your own yard, the Blue Thumb - Planting for Clean Water program can help. We aim to make it easy for residents to plan, purchase and plant beautiful native gardens, raingardens and shorelines. These cost-effective plantings require little watering and minimal care after established. They also invite birds and butterflies to your yard.
After months of careful deliberation, we are pleased to announce that Metro Blooms and Blue Thumb are becoming one nonprofit organization operating under the name of Blue Thumb—Planting for Clean Water®. As a unified non-profit, we are expanding our resources and see enormous growth potential because we are no longer confined to a specific geographic area serving its taxpayers. We will continue to seek and facilitate opportunities for collaboration among our partners with a focus on beautiful, ecologically functional landscapes.
