Shout out in the latest Longfellow Nokomis Messenger

By Jeff Zeitler on Sunday, November 29th, 2015

We seem to keep getting great news coverage.  This week there’s an article in the Messenger, not about Urban Forage, but about the ReciproCITY Food Forest proposed for the flooded Hiawatha golf course site.

We’ve pledged 100 fruit trees to the project to help it get off the ground and this information made it into the article.  A friend of mine from the Landscape architecture program at the U of M is heading this effort and I’m excited to see what develops.  I think this is a chance for Minneapolis to go Seattle one step better and turn a chemically-dependent land use like a golf course into a beautiful and productive urban food forest.

And then we’ll process the leftover fruit into cider and wine!  It’s a win-win.
