What’s Growing?

Rivoli Bluff Farm is in full swing! Intrepid staff members have been plowing, installing drip irrigation and planting the quarter acre plot. Thanks to our partnership with the Dayton’s Bluff Neighborhood Housing Services, we benefitted from a Minnesota Superbowl Legacy Fund of the Minnesota Community Foundation and the hard work of Pentair volunteers who planted 60 fruit trees adjacent to the vegetable crops. Raspberries and other fruit shrubs will soon join the orchard plot. We’re excited to be heading into such a fruitful summer!

Another exciting growth opportunity for Urban Roots? This July, look for our newly built 38’ x 52’ high-tunnel as a pilot project in partnership with the Department of Agriculture. We look forward to increased production for 2017-2018!
