DIRECTOR’S MESSAGE View an expanded version of the FY2010 annual report online at July 2010 It is my profound honor to take the helm at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. The Arboretum’s natural diversity of woodlands, wetlands and prairie, the cultivated gardens and tree collections make it a premier public garden. The cold-hardy plant and fruit research and introductions by the Horticultural Research Center (HRC) are a standout in the world of horticulture research and discovery. I am delighted to be a part of the Arboretum community—the wonderful volunteers, the generous philanthropic community and dedicated staff make the Arboretum a special place. We honor our past, but look to the future opportunity and challenge. I am excited about the potential of the new Western

JULY 1, 2009 – J UN E 30, 2010

2010 YEAR IN REVIEW Over the past year, the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum continues to fulfill its diverse mission to serve as a community resource with public display gardens, horticultural research, plant conservation, and education and outreach. Highlights are noted below in the areas of sustainability, development and capital projects, horticulture research, exhibits and education/outreach, and donor support. I. Sustainability Harvest Your Rain at Margot Picnic Area A permanent green roof constructed on an Arboretum picnic shelter demonstrates ways to re-use rainwater or help it filter into the earth, lessening harmful runoff into street drains and eventually our rivers, streams and lakes. Installed in late May, 2010, the Arboretum’s green roof was planted with 13 species of sedums and native “goat prairie” plants and made possible through a special partnership with the Minnesota Green Roofs Council and its member companies and organizations for donating supplies and/or labor. Harvest Your Rain also features exhibits on rain barrels and rain gardens. Rain barrels linked to a gutter system provides a reservoir of water to use for watering plants, filling birdbaths and other outdoor uses. Rain gardens are an attractive landscaping feature consisting of a bowlshaped or saucer-shaped garden filled with shrubs and perennial plants that thrive in changing water levels. It serves as a temporary holding area to contain storm water runoff from impervious surfaces such as roofs, driveways and parking lots and allow it to filter into the earth.

II. Development and Capital Projects The new Western Addition completes ownership of Arboretum watershed. In January, 2009, the University of Minnesota and Arboretum purchased the property adjacent to our western boundary, a 90-acre parcel. This addition brings a total of 1, 137 acres. Maple and basswood big woods with wildflowers, open fields (that were probably prairie) and wetlands are part of this property. Roads, trails, and walking paths through the area will soon be developed. The new Western Addition will be used to teach about plants and the environment and how the land has been used by our ancestors through the ages: from American Indians who harvested the especially sweet maple syrup, to early settlers who planted fields. Do we have any section trees on this property? These trees were used as landmarks to delineate sections of property in the 1800s. Did the Conestoga wagon trail pass through this area? Research will uncover the rich history of the land and the findings will be interpreted with the public and integrated into educational programs in the coming years. III. Horticulture Research New apple introduction shakes market to the core In the 101 years of the northern hardy fruit breeding program at the University of Minnesota’s Horticultural Research Center (HRC), 26 robust varieties of apples have been introduced in the marketplace…but a newbie helped shake things up in Fall 2009. After 20 years of research, testing, and cultivation, SweeTango®–the off spring of Honeycrisp and Zestar parentage–burst on the scene with predictions over time to jostle Honeycrisp from its superstar perch. David




and chief apple breeder at the HRC (co-credited with Dr James Luby for introducing Honeycrisp) are the brains and tasters responsible for developing SweeTango®, Stringent criterion ranging from texture, size, disease-resistance– much less appearance and taste–make the apple breeding market a high stakes environment encompassing 20-30 years on average to develop a new variety. It often requires another 10-15 years before the variety is readily available in markets and grocery stores. Bedford says that texture and flavor are the two most important factors that dictate the future success of any particular apple variety from the University’s breeding program. A limited supply of SweeTango® apples were introduced for sale at the Arboretum AppleHouse in early Fall, 2009 and select grocery stores and markets. IV. Exhibits, Education and Outreach Youth Voices and Land Summit In fall, 2009, the Arboretum presented a conference of Youth Voices, an opportunity to listen to youth tell adults their ideas and interests. In addition, the Arboretum hosted a Land Conservation and Clean Water Summit for communities and professionals on how to better manage land and water resources. YOUTH VOICES: DESIGNING GARDEN-BASED PROGRAMS FOR CHILDREN & YOUTH Saturday, October 3 A primary focus of the Youth Education Department is to use garden based programs to engage youth in hands on experiences that build skills, increase knowledge, and improve the vitality of the community. Graduates of the Urban Garden in Residence and CityFresh planning team members have a

2010 YEAR IN REVIEW combined total of 66 summers working, growing and leading urban garden-based programs for youth. At the October conference, they evaluated the impact of these programs on their lives and offered critical insight into which aspects of the programs are valuable and which are not. “I would like to see more followup programs for older kids,” said Ebony Turner, 20, a planning team member. “Kids get to a certain age and they can’t go anymore. What’s next?” “It’s good to start early (in the garden). It helps develop a work ethic, and you gain a sense of responsibility at a younger age,” said Xavier Porter, 21, planning team member. Deedra Porter, 19, planning team member, also believes that the garden based programs “help to show kids responsibility and respect not only for the garden, but also in their everyday lives.” Team member LaVance Dixon, 19, says, “You can learn how not to be afraid to fail – just try things and not worry about whether they fail.”

The planning began in July, with team members at the Learning Center collaborating on the conference goal: to inject youth voice into garden-based program design and implementation. The most important point, they said, is that kid-participants expand the perspective of program designers, adding the depth and breadth of their direct experience to make a program more relevant to other children. Equally important for a truly

lasting impact, garden-based programs must continue past age 12. V. Donor Support Arboretum Trustee Challenge Fund Update In September 2009, the Arboretum Foundation Board of Trustees generously established a Challenge Fund to encourage donors to support our beloved Arboretum. For this initiative, the Trustees collectively pledged $96,100 above and beyond their annual support. This fund has been used to match, dollar for dollar, all reinstated, increased and new gifts. In this way, a donor’s gift has a doubled impact for the Arboretum.

The Arboretum is pleased to announce that the challenge has been exceeded. To date the Arboretum has received $101,352 in reinstated, increased and new gifts from 615 donors as a result of the Trustee’s Challenge Fund! Of the 1364 donors during this time period, nearly half of those gifts were new or increased from the previous year. The Arboretum wishes to thank the Arboretum Foundation Board of Trustees for their leadership and support and also the generous Arboretum donors who responded and made this Challenge Fund an amazing success!

EXHIB IT S, EDUCAT IO N A ND O UT REA CH Spring Exhibition: THE BIG BUILD by Patrick Dougherty Artist in residence May 3-22 Acclaimed environmental artist Patrick Dougherty brought his creative vision to life, weaving an immense masterwork with surplus forest saplings and branches for the Arboretum in the center island, outside the Oswald Visitor Center. Dougherty has built more than 175 installations worldwide over the past 30 years, from Scotland to France, Japan to Australia and now at the Arboretum! With willow as his medium and the Arboretum as his inspiration, he twisted and wove sticks and tree saplings, assisted by staff and volunteers, into a work he christened “Uff da Palace” as homage to the multiple meanings and experiences in the use of this Minnesota folk phrase. After Dougherty officially christened his newest sculpture, a public procession from the Big Build to the StickWorks Studio at the Marion Andrus Learning Center took place for a second ribbon cutting by the artist: StickWorks Studio was opened May 22- October 10. This open-air studio under the trees encouraged visitors of all ages to weave their own stick art this summer. Grapevine and willow were provided. Presented by J.P. Morgan Additional support from Country Inn & Suites Chanhassen, McGough Construction and Suburban Chevrolet.
