Dear MNLGA Members:

This e-mail is distributed to key contacts; please feel free to share with others in your office.


I am seeking clarification on several retail garden center questions. First, are they "essential" or not. And if not essential, may the continue curbside pick up and deliveries.

Lawncare businesses have been deemed essential.

Please stay tuned - there are gray, areas, of course, and I'll do my best to get answers.....

Please reference the COVID-19 resource page, linked on the homepage of the MNLGA website,

Please keep me, Vanessa, informed of what is going on with your business. If I know what is going on, I may be a better resource to you and to other members as we navigate together this uncharted territory. Feel free to email me at Vanessa

Stay well and let me know if there is anything the MNLGA can do for you.

Vanessa A. Finney
Executive Director, MNLGA
