Many of you joined Waite House and Gardening Matters for the Community Gardens in Minneapolis Parks policy review session on July 18th 2016. In that session, we heard loud and clear that our community wants access to space to grow food in Minneapolis Parks, wants those spaces to be pesticide and herbicide free, and wants a choice about whether or not to fence them. Parks staff heard your concerns and made those changes to the draft policy.
Before Spring, the final policy will go before the Minneapolis Park Board for approval. We need your support to make sure it passes! Call your Park Commissioners today and let them know you support growing in Minneapolis Parks!
