In just two years, 18 city-owned plots land have opened up to community gardens, hundreds of fruit trees have been planted in Minneapolis neighborhoods, and several mini-farmers markets have sprouted up all around town. Help us celebrate these and other milestones at an upcoming Homegrown Minneapolis community meeting.
Homegrown Minneapolis community meeting
Thursday, Dec. 9, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Urban Research and Outreach Center
2001 Plymouth Avenue North , Minneapolis
This meeting is an opportunity to learn about the progress made in promoting locally grown food and to also update stakeholders and residents on efforts to improve and increase local food growing, processing, distribution, consumption and waste management in the city.
One of the highlights will be a presentation on the Urban Agriculture Policy Plan that’s been under development and being released for a 45-day public comment period. Brief presentations will be followed by breakout sessions on the Plan and other current Homegrown Minneapolis topics.
