Lakewood Cemetery is offering behind-the-scenes tours of their greenhouse operations and a take-home planting opportunity as an Earth Day Celebration. Lakewood, located in south Minneapolis, is one of the only cemeteries in the country that still maintains a full-service greenhouse operation, and this event marks the only day of the year that the greenhouses are open to the public. The event takes place, Sunday, April 22nd, from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., with the grounds open for self-guided tours from 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.

The greenhouse tours at last year’s first annual Earth Day Celebration sold out very quickly, so this year they have added many more tour times, but act fast if you are interested in attending this event.
