Gardening Matters and the city’s Homegrown Minneapolis.

The LFRH could be a strong support system for SE Minneapolis gardeners and community gardeners. SECIA is looking for a couple of individuals who would like to assist getting a LFRH up and running on the east side. This commitment would involve a series of meetings starting in late fall 2010 through winter, and then implementing the hub activities during the growing season. Meeting locations will happen at varied SE & NE locations per the group's schedule. We are most interested in finding folks that know they will be living in Southeast Minneapolis for a couple of years, but anyone can assist if they have the interest. Have questions and inquires?
