Blue Thumb encourages people to plant native plants, put in raingardens, complete shoreline stabilization projects and other practices to protect clean water, support pollinators, and choose turf alternatives that require less watering and fewer inputs. Blue Thumb is a program of the non-profit Metro Blooms. A donation to Blue Thumb goes through Metro Blooms to support our Blue Thumb education programming. This includes the Lawns to Legumes program, public education workshops, Sustainable Landcare Training, the Environmental Justice Hub, Blue Thumb partner engagement and resource development.
Donations to Blue Thumb are tax-deductible—we may also be eligible for a matching gift from your employer!
