The Duluth NAACP Health & Environmental Equity Committee welcomes Morgan Park neighbors in particular and the public in general to the next Garden Committee Meeting. The meeting will take place this Saturday 1:00-4:00PM at the Goodfellowship Community Center, 1242 88th Ave W, Duluth, MN 55808.
Morgan Park neighbors and the Duluth NAACP Health & Environmental Equity Committee have formed the Garden Committee with the mission to build a community garden for the Morgan Park Food Justice Community Garden Project. The project is designed to help neighbors who may not always know where their next meal is coming from. The garden is planned to be built in the spring of 2020, with funding that the Duluth NAACP Health & Environmental Equity committee received from the University of Minnesota Institute on the Environment’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Grant.
Saturday’s event will host an expert panel, including people who have helped start or run community gardens and garden programs. Neighbors will be asked about their interest in gardening and for their input on the location of the garden, size of plots, and management of garden upkeep. Information tables related to health and gardening will be open for exploration during the afternoon.
Childcare and fresh vegetable snacks will be provided. Everyone attending will have the opportunity to enter a raffle to win one of ten $10 gift cards to a local grocery store.
