Homegrown Minneapolis to report results at open house Dec. 3

Learn more about past and future work around nutritious and locally grown foods at a Homegrown Minneapolis open house from 6-8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 3 at Cedars Hall, 602 University Ave. NE. In the last year, the City has helped make it easier to find healthy food in neighborhood stores; made it easier to have a backyard beehive; allowed farm stands to sell fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs grown within the city more days; and allowed mobile grocery stores that sell fresh food.

The open house will include:

Homegrown Minneapolis is a citywide initiative expanding the community’s ability to grow, process, distribute, eat and compost more healthy, sustainable, locally grown foods.

Homegrown Minneapolis has changed urban agriculture zoning laws, developed a network of community gardens, established access to healthy food at corner stores, supported farm-to-school efforts in the Minneapolis Public School District, and developed a Minneapolis Food Council to foster community change. Homegrown Minneapolis is bringing together key partners from local government, area businesses, community organizations, nonprofits and residents to build a healthy, local food system.
