Community Education Garden July 2020

The seed was planted and what was an idea grew into a flourishing garden behind the Ideal Green Market Cooperative. Local gardeners with a passion for passing on their knowledge of gardening have created a garden using Garden Circles as raised beds, designed by Garden Circles owner/operator Ryan Hunt an employee of Hunt Utilities Group in Pine River, MN. Funds for this project were provided by the Pelican Lakes Conservation Club, the Ideal Community Service Organization, Lakes Area Rotary and Crow Wing Energized.
