Soccer teams and leagues come and go but our local communities remain forever. Participating in our Silver Lining service opportunities is your chance to make an indelible mark on the Twin Cities.
Date & Time: Saturday, April 30th, 2016 – 9:30 am – 4:00 pm
Location: Heritage Park – 500 Van White Memorial Blvd, Minneapolis, MN 55405
Partner Organization: Green Garden Bakery
Volunteers Needed: 15
The Green Garden Bakery is a group of young-entrepreneurs from the Heritage Park neighborhood in Near North Minneapolis, who have started their own “green” environmental veggie dessert business.
We will be helping to build 7 raised planting beds with benches & climbing trellis, before filling them with soil. Lunch will be provided by Urban Strategies and the Summit Brewing Company will provide refreshments at the post Silver Lining party at a location TBD for participants.
The Green Garden Bakery entrepreneurs piloted their business in 2014 by selling green tomato cakes using recycled packaging and spreading environmental awareness. They grew the tomatoes in their own youth garden, harvested them, perfected their recipe, developed their brand and business, and worked hard throughout Minneapolis to procure sales.
