Lawns to Legumes and MCAD Art Partnership

The Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) is one of the many partners helping to realize Lawns to Legumes, a Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR) program offering grants, workshops, coaching and other help for Minnesota residents to create habitat for pollinators in their yards. Blue Thumb manages the individual support part of Lawns to Legumes. Through a collaboration involving MCAD, BWSR and Metro Blooms/Blue Thumb, artists in MCAD’s Entrepreneurial Studies program have created images and promotional strategies for Lawns to Legumes. Look out for their artwork on our websites and social media throughout the year! Learn more about the current artists(s) we’re featuring below.
