As the end of 2012 approaches Metro Blooms is looking back on some of the big moments we had this year. As always we started the year out with a series of raingarden workshops throughout the metro area and Blooms Day, an educational event combined with a plant sale and garden awards.

Some students even got to plant their own garden!
