St. Odilia Prayer Garden Wins Top Honors!

The St. Odilia Prayer Garden recently won top honors in the Ramsey-Washington Metro Watershed District's Landscape Ecology Awards Program (LEAP) for our three colorful and attractive rain gardens on the north side of the Prayer Garden property.  The judges were impressed with the use of native plants in the design, and amazed to learn how much rain water the gardens intercepted.  "We observed that the maintenance of the garden was excellent.  What a beautiful example of stewardship!  We also want to thank Roger Toogood for being an excellent guide for the project."
