Founded just last year, Buchanan Street Farms, 2407 Buchanan Street NE, has become a immediate community treasure. A basic homestead garden, begun as a family plot, the Garden will expand this year into a local, Northeast market gardens with plans to sell once a week on site and at least once a week at one of the several local Minneapolis farmers markets.
Buchanan Street Farms is dedicated to educating children and their parents about the small farm, the environment and the community. On Saturday, May 5, the Farm will begin a series of five educational programs designed to present information about food, the environment and the community in interesting ways.
Planners of Saturday’s event advise children and parents to be prepared to get dirty (that’s the fun part!) and to take a plant or project home – possibly something for Mom on Mother’s Day?
It’s all free and open.
