Dividing or removing perennials or small shrubs in your garden this spring? Consider donating them to the Unity Minneapolis – Flower and Garden Ministry to help revitalize our church grounds and garden beds.

Bring plants (clearly marked with the plant name, bloom color, and estimated height) to the northwest patio at the back of the church between Saturday, May 20, and Saturday, May 27.

Plant the plants in 6”-8” plastic pots if possible. There are extra pots and soil available for you in the back patio area.

You may purchase plants to donate, too. Or monetary donations are welcome to benefit the Unity Minneapolis Flower and Garden Ministry.
