Homegrown MPLS OPEN HOUSE
After sampling a bite (or 3) of: 2 different pound cakes, a strawberry cream tart, and some maplesnaps I decided to go walk it off at the Homegrown MPS open house as the East Phillips Park Cultural Community Center. The turn out was great. The food provided by Sister Camelot and Birchwood Cafe smelled amazing and the gymnasium was lined with multiple stands highlighting various educational organizations that promote sustainability, as well as some local CSAs.
We talked with Zach Robinson with the YEA Corps. And basically they are teaching students in 3 Twin Cities Schools (there is a waiting list!) to run aquaponics systems (just like David Abazs!)using this little guy for his fertilizer...
There is just so much cool stuff happening in this city it's unreal! Here's Ali just beaming while talking to with Erin (?) from the Beez Kneez. The Beez Kneez provide bee/bee keeping education to schools and community centers, as well as deliver fresh honey by bike!
Equally as fantastic as the news above, I grabbed some applications for CSAs! Suggestions?
