What is Frogtown Green?

Resident-Led
NEIGHBORHOOD SUSTAINABILITY

Frogtown Green is a volunteer-powered, resident-led group that began with Frogtown Park & Farm. From 2009 to 2012, we campaigned for the preservation of 13 vacant acres in the middle of our neighborhood and its conversion into a public park with an urban farm. Since that success, we have created six more parklets and gardens; planted hundreds of trees; sponsored dozens of events, and collaborated with friends and groups all over Saint Paul.

How It started

It all started with a crazy idea about a farm...in the city. Here's an interview with Frogtown Green's founder and director, Patricia Ohmans. (Recorded by StoryCorps in St Paul, 2016)
