Do you have a couple square feet of space on your boulevard or front yard to grow delicious beans? We’ll provide the compost, beans, and three pieces of rebar to form a tripod for the beans to grow on. You provide some water and a little love. Then enjoy your delicious beans and share the bounty with your neighbors!
Beans on the Boulevard is a collaborative project between Growing West Side and the West Side Community Organization. The benefits are many!
- Draws attention to food justice issues on the West Side, including lack of access to healthy food sources
- Demonstrates the ease and joy of growing local food (a climate resiliency issue)
- Creates a sense of community as we see the visual representation (the rebar and beans) all over the neighborhood
Will you join us? We’ll bring you everything you need. Contact Maureen Hark from Growing West Side @ 651-253-1903 or [email protected]. You can also pick up materials at the first West Side Farmer's Market of the season, Saturday June 1st, at Icy Cup.
