SEEDS Feeds &
to ORDER YOUR GARDEN!
Tiny Mobile Greenhouse Farm
At the beginning of 2020, SLP SEEDS became the recipients of the Minnesota Department of Agriculture - Urban Agriculture grant. This award will create a tiny mobile farm called SEEDS Feeds! Throughout the many community conversations, one continuous theme we have found is that there needs to be more outreach for the garden programs. We know that it is not always within the capacity of an organization or apartment complex to have a garden. But now, with SEEDS Feeds!, we will be able to bring the farm to residents!
Our goal is to do 5-10 events in different neighborhoods or apartment complexes between mid June and September. These events will have:
an educational component about nutrition and ways people can grow in small spaces;
a meal component where residents will get to eat a healthy, fresh-food delicious meal;
a free fresh-foods distribution component; and
a community engagement component where we will continue the conversation about what residents need in the city in order to thrive. Hopefully, these conversations will activate a community that can work together on a Food Action Plan for the city.
