SWCD: Rain Barrels and Compost Bins and TREES

Rain Barrels and Compost Bins and TREES…oh my!


Cook County Soil and Water Conservation District is holding a Rain Barrel and Compost Bin Sale in conjunction with the Annual Tree & Shrub Sale. Pre-orders will be due on April 14, 2017 and distribution will be on May 11, 2017.


As part of Cook SWCD’s commitment to conservation, we are pleased to announce this community conservation program to help reduce our impact on the local environment. Through April 14, 2017, conservation products will be available for special pricing. The SYSTERN Rain Barrel can provide a household with 55 gallons of non-potable water that can be used in your backyard compost bin, garden or for any outdoor water use. Rain barrels reduce erosion and increase water quality by reducing the amount of stormwater pollution to our nearby lakes and streams. The SYSTERN Rain Barrel, which normally retails for $120, is available for $58. Also available, The Earth Machine Backyard Compost Bin, normally retails for $100, will be available for $48.


Conservation trees and shrubs are available at $25 to $40 per bundle of bare-root plants. Choose from a variety of species, but order soon to ensure best availability as things do sell out.


Order forms are available at the Soil & Water office or at www.co.cook.mn.us. Order forms must be received by April 14, 2017 to take part in these valuable conservation programs. Contact the Soil & Water office at 218-387-3647 for more information.

Memorial Service Saturday March 25, 11 AM

Person's Name: 
Warren L. Anderson
Warren L. Anderson

Warren Ludwig Anderson, 84, of Grand Marais, died March 16, 2017 at Cook County North Shore Hospital.

Warren was born September 26, 1932 in Minneapolis, MN to Marguerite and Ludwig Anderson.

He married Lorraine Cahlander July 9, 1955 at Hennepin Methodist Church in Minneapolis, and received his degree at Augsburg College.

Warren served his country in the Army during the Korean War.  Through his career in Social Services, he served his communities as Hennepin County Social Services Child Protection Supervisor, Director of Cook County Social Services, and Guardian ad Litem for the Sixth Judicial District Court.  He also served on several boards, including the Arrowhead Regional Corrections and the Cook County Council on Aging.

Warren loved to cook, and owned the Square Peg Restaurant in Minneapolis back in the late ‘70’s.

He loved the outdoors.  In his younger days he camped in the Boundary Waters, enjoyed stays at Gunflint, Gateway Hungry Jack, and Chik-wauk lodges, and later at his McFarland Lake cabin.  He loved fishing with friends, feeding the deer and birds, and picking his fresh tomatoes from his garden.

Perhaps most of all, he loved a good card game, earning the level of Silver Lifetime Master in Duplicate Bridge.  Thanks to all who shared the table with him during his life.

He is preceded in death by his wife - Lorraine, sister – Gloria Anderson, brother – Richard “Dick” Anderson, parents, and his in-laws, Adele and Loren Cahlander.

Writers' Guild moves to 3rd THURSDAYS (next: 4/20)

If you're not on the email list for a monthly reminder and occasional prompts, sign up here: http://eepurl.com/cdM-PP
Hello writers,
Thanks to the man with the keys, library director Steve Harsin, we will be able to continue meeting at the library on THURSDAYS, 6-7:30. 

Input has been that it's nice to write in a quiet space rather than on a busy Wednesday evening. I hope this won't inconvenience anyone.

Please update your calendars-- I promise we won't switch it back and forth for the foreseeable future! 

As always, I'll bring prompts. Bring your notebooks (and anything you'd like to discuss).

Spread the word.


p.s. mark your calendars:
April 20, May 18 and June 15, July 20...

p.p.s. if you missed March's gathering, here's the image prompt we wrote on:
