Lawns to Legumes Cost Share program for Landowners

Minnesota passed legislation May, 2019 for a cost share program to help landowners transform their turf lawn into habitat that will benefit pollinators. Currently, the program is under “development” and eventually will be managed through local conservation partners. A bee lawn or low mow lawn is a flowering carpet of fescues and low growing flowers such as white dutch clover, wild strawberry, self heal, creeping thyme, blanket flower, ground plum and others. Pesticides are not used on a bee lawn since they harm pollinators.
