Free Summer Cooking Classes and Resources

By MICHELLE SHAW

If you didn’t make it to the Minneapolis Edible Boulevards (MEB) June cooking class with Lachelle Cunningham, check out the recipe and video on the MEB Facebook page. The smoked mushroom flatbread was “heaven”, as one person said, and got attendees thinking about how to cook with ingredients grown in their gardens. Huge shout-outs to Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church and Chef Lachelle for co-hosting and to the Green Zone grant for sponsoring the program.
On July 13, we will welcome Jess Toliver of jessdeliciousliving.com to the Old Highland Peace Garden, where we’ll be making a delicious rice noodle salad with peanut sauce. Then we’ll return to the Southside on August 1 for a rare weekday class, which will be co-hosted with the Indigenous Food Lab Education Team at the Four Sisters Market from 12:30 -1:30 p.m. Stop by on your lunch break or join via Zoom. All classes are free – you can find the registration links and class calendars on our Facebook and Instagram pages or by contacting minneapolisedibleboulevards@gmail.com.
In Edible Boulevard news, part of 2024’s grant funding is dedicated to boulevard garden resources for the Latine community, translating our materials, and doing community outreach with translators. There are still garden resources available for Latine neighbors who live in the neighborhoods MEB partners with (listed on the application). Both Spanish and English applications are available on our Facebook page.
We’re also in full swing building gardens in neighborhoods across the two Green Zones, which is exciting. Keep an eye on our social media pages in the event that applications open up again. You could still create the garden in August or early September and plant fall crops for shared fruit.
Please reach out with any questions or ideas at minneapolisedibleboulevards@gmail.com. You can also check out our website in development (minneapolisedibleboulevards.org).
If you can volunteer with any part of what we do, please reach out! We can’t wait to grow with you!

As a Northeaster, Michelle Shaw joined the City’s Community Environmental Advisory Commission in 2017 and became a fierce advocate for the Roof Depot and for the Northside community to be included in creating Upper Harbor Terminal. After spending time with community members in both Green Zones, the area she knew she could best partner with community (and you can find her subbing at a Southside school!) was food injustice; Minneapolis Edible Boulevards was born in 2019.
