What does an abundant neighborhood look like? This is a question that I think about a lot. The 9th Ward is more than a bit of a “food desert ,” especially when it concerns fresh, healthy, and affordable produce.
It’s with this in mind that I’m really excited to have had folks from Twin Cities Agricultural Land Trust down at the shop today. A group of urban farmers, academics, and activists, TCALT advocates for re-zoning strategies that lobby for municipal owned, and / or vacant, land to be made available as land trusts for urban farming.
TCALT will be starting a recurring get-together in association with Beyond Repair. Likely the first gathering will be towards the end of the month.
