The Foundation Garden Party features an exclusive garden tour at the remarkable private residence of Mike and Judy Cunningham in Shoreview, Minnesota. Your support helps to recruit, engage and educate the next generation of green industry professionals.

After a tornado took out 13 mature oak trees in 1998, the void spurred the Cunningham’s to begin creating a bolder vision for their property. The result is an outdoor haven that now includes three ponds, multiple shade gardens, a roomy fire pit area and meandering flagstone paths.

Specially chosen botanical delights, rustic art and an original cast of creatures make their place a pleasure to visit. Roughly 50 birdhouses, all recently repainted, decorate the property. Creatively hung collections of old wagon wheels, pots, saws, gears and tools add interesting flourishes

Arbors, walkways, a vintage playhouse and colorful fencing break the landscape into themed gardens. Benches and sitting areas welcome relaxation at every turn. The old garage for garden tools was replaced with a Irish Pub style hideaway for friends. Actually has everything you’d see in a pub except strangers or paying customers. Mike and Judy admit that their ideas always are bigger when they finish and they are always re-doing or creating the next garden.
