During the summer of 2011 Minot, North Dakota and the Souris River Valley was inundated by flood waters damaging 20% of the city with more than 4,100 homes and yards being damaged. The water covered so many homes that 2,376 had 6-10 feet of water and an additional 805 homes were damaged beyond repair. The flood waters that covered our yards and parks for nearly a month left behind silt, sand and mud, killing all of the grass.
Minot Rotary clubs are helping with this process by raising funds to purchase grass seed. The grass seed will be donated to homeowners and the Minot Park District so we can begin to green up the the more than 4,000 yards and 300 park acres that were under water.
Helping by the Numbers
1 yard requires 30lbs of grass seed
30lbs of grass seed costs $45
1 acre of a park, school or city block requires 220lbs of grass seed
220 lbs of grass seed costs $330
The Goal is simple
The goal of Rotary Planting Hope is to provide enough grass seed to replant the yards of the more than 4,000 homes and 300 acres of parks that were damaged by the 2011
