Blooming Saint Paul

Blooming Saint Paul's mission is to beautify Saint Paul through supporting the communal creation of a healthy natural environment in order to enhance touring, living and working in the city. This program combines the efforts of many local organizations, City departments, and community members to create a more vibrant, more vital, more natural environment.
In 2002, Saint Paul Parks and Recreation and the Saint Paul Garden Club teamed up for Blooming Saint Paul's first project, the beautification of the Kellogg Boulevard median situated between Robert Street and Wabasha Street. Today, the median is springing with a variety of shrubs, perennials and seasonal displays.
In 2005, the initiative also absorbed the increasingly popular Hanging Basket program which was begun in 1998 by the Capitol City Partnership and the Rice Park Association.
Blooming Saint Paul's beautification efforts have since reached over 120 sites with almost 600 hanging baskets and more than 8.5 acres of garden beds receive care from city staff and hundreds of volunteer gardeners. The initiative has also inspired many nearby businesses and homeowners to beautify their own grounds resulting in a more beautiful city for everyone.
