Seed distribution event April 5
Posted 3/31/2014
A Local Food Resource Hub is a community-based network of residents, organizations, and businesses supporting each other to grow, cook, preserve, and compost their own fresh produce. Hubs benefit communities by connecting neighbors and increasing access to healthy food. Residents of Minneapolis and St. Paul can join the Local Food Resource Hubs and select a small, medium, or large garden package- prices vary by size and partial scholarships are available. Gardening Matters orders the seeds and plants in bulk, which allows residents very affordable prices on garden packages. Members pick up their seeds and plants at distribution events held across Minneapolis and St. Paul, which are run by Gardening Matters, Hub members, and countless neighborhood partners and volunteers. Residents can attend a seed distribution event Saturday, April 5, noon-3 p.m., at Christ English Lutheran Church, 3210 Oliver Ave. N. Otherwise, contact Gardening Matters at 612-821-2358, or visit www.gardeningmatters.org/hubs for more information about the program, including a map of the Hub areas and the sign up form. English and Spanish paper forms are available from Gardening Matters and can be downloaded from the website as well.
