Gardening Hubs in the Press

It's great to see the gardening hubs get some good press.   The hubs are a key activity of the Homegrown Minneapolis initiative, funded by the Minneapolis Health Department through the State Health Improvement Program (SHIP).

The idea was that there are many people in Minneapolis who want to grow their own food, but don't necessarily have the skills, experience and resources to start.  The hubs get novice growers connected with those resources - including seedlings - and people who have done more gardening and can answer their questions.

If you're interested in getting involved in the hubs, go here as soon as possible.  Membership is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Seeds and plants will be distributed April 14 and May 19, but the membership slots may fill up before then.
