Plant a pollinator garden at Sustainable Tuesdays

Sustainable Tuesdays, a weekly presentation on topics related to environmental and sustainability issues presented by the Bemidji State University Sustainability Office, will continue work on the outdoor garden at the Rail River Folk School as part of its May lineup of events.

Sustainable Tuesdays events are held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Rail River Folk School, located at 303 Railroad St. SW in Bemidji. They are open free to the public unless otherwise noted.

May 13: Pollinator Garden
The Rail River Folk School crew will continue the work done during last month’s permaculture workshop and craft a flower bed for pollinators. Weather permitting, the group will work outside in the garden.

Sustainable Tuesdays are a partnership between Bemidji State’s Sustainability Office, the Indigenous Environmental Network, Minnesota GreenCorps and the Rail River Folk School. The Sustainable Tuesdays presentations aim to draw upon the strengths of the region’s diversity to create a sustainable Bemidji.
