If you’ve been following us this summer, you know that Backyard Harvest has partnered with the Cornerstone Development Group to install 435 sq. ft. of food gardens at Rivertown Commons, an urban apartment development located in Frogtown. This garden showcases our innovative model of food production at a multi-unit housing site. Residents are sharing the ultra-local harvest, following the garden through the seasons, and coming together around delicious food and garden-related activities.

The garden will be open to the community for touring (led by Farmer Dina) on Thursday, July 22nd between 10AM and 12 noon. Anyone is invited to stop by anytime during that time frame. We will be on hand to answer your questions!

Rivertown Commons is located at: 175 Charles Avenue, St. Paul (garden location is in the courtyard behind the building)
