Last Call to Apply for 2022 Edible Boulevards!

By MICHELLE SHAW

Do you live in Cedar Riverside, Ventura Village, Midtown Phillips, Phillips West or East Phillips? If so, you are a resident of the Southside Green Zone and you’re eligible to apply for participation in the Minneapolis Edible Boulevards initiative. We have funding to go towards teaching people how to transform the space between the sidewalk and curb into an edible boulevard, as well as for soil testing, seeds, organic soil, and compost. An application is posted on our Minneapolis Edible Boulevards Facebook page, which we invite you to join. If you live in another neighborhood and want to participate, contact your neighborhood association to let them know you’d like them to partner with us.

If you’re willing and able to volunteer in any way, we would greatly appreciate your help. Possibilities include co-administering our Facebook page, pick-up and delivery of compost and organic soil to garden build sites, help with gardening, photographing garden creations and tabling at events. Just contact Michelle if you’re interested!

  • June 4: Foraging webinar with elder Hope Flanagan of Dream of Wild Health
  • July 9: Cooking from the Garden with Natalia Mendez, (location TBD)
