We take your health and safety very seriously. As the Minnesota Department of Health has issued a recommendation in line with Center for Disease Control guidelines to postpone community events that have 50 or more attendees, such as the Growing Healthy Soils Event.

COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS: (3/12/2020)
We take your health and safety very seriously. As the Minnesota Department of Health is not issuing a recommendation at this time to cancel community events such as the Growing Healthy Soils Event, we still plan to hold the event at this time as scheduled.
We are also aware of the recommendation made by Governor Evers in our neighboring state of Wisconsin recommending canceling events that will draw more than 250 people, which has been matched by other states and local governments across the country in affected areas. As the Growing Healthy Soils event has a max capacity of 150 people, we are also below this threshold recommendation.
We are keeping up with the news and reports from the CDC and our Minnesota public health officials about COVID-19 and how it may affect the events such as the Growing Healthy Soils Event. Any postponements, rescheduling, or cancellation of the event will be announced on our website and on social media, as well as emails to ticketholders.
The staff at Ridges at Sand Creek as well the staff at PLSLWD are taking extra precautions to ensure the cleanliness of the venue. We encourage attendees to cover your mouth if you cough or sneeze, wash your hands with soap for 20 seconds, avoid touching your face, and above all – stay home if you are not feeling well.
