Keep Frogtown Farm Growing
Frogtown's Beloved Farm
Needs Our Help
Dear Friends of Frogtown Farm:
In early April, the three-member board of directors of Frogtown Farm* announced their decision not to grow food on the farm's fields this season.
Want to keep the Farm growing? Join us by filling out the form below.
This decision not to cultivate the Frogtown Farm fields on the basis of a presumed COVID-19 threat was made against the beset advice of agricultural safety experts at the University of Minnesota.
Obviously, food can be and must be grown safely this year; Governor Walz' statewide "stay at home" order specifically exempts agriculture and landscaping, among other essential services. Plans to grow food—in one of the neighborhoods that will be hardest hit by even more financial and food insecurity—should not be abandoned. They should be redoubled, so that Frogtown Farm can continue to provide food for our neighbors.
Frogtown Farm gives our neighborhood an identity as a thriving, creative and progressive place. The Farm, in the lovely words of the Farm’s new strategic framework, is a place where “people of every background can cultivate a shared peace.”
Tell city officials we need Frogtown Farm now, more than ever.
Please fill out the form below and we'll relay your comments to the city officials who can ensure that the Farm keeps growing food and feeding Frogtown.
Director, Frogtown Green*
