Perhaps you’ve watched the transformation happen over the summer – the land at 42nd Avenue and 40th Street – as it’s transitioned from a relatively unassuming lot to a productive plot with vegetables thriving in fertile soil.
The people working the soil have big plans for the Tiny Diner Farm. Restauranteur Kim Bartmann is planning to use the produce from the farm to supply her new restaurant, The Tiny Diner, which will be located at 38th Street and 11th Avenue.
The farm will also offer workshops for the community on topics such as food preservation, beekeeping, soil fertility planning, and seed saving.
The farm is hosting a harvest festival tomorrow night (10/8) from 4-7 p.m. for the community to come and taste the farm’s produce, take a tour, and learn more about the project. There will be activities for kids as well including making brooms out of broom corn, picking flowers, and chalk art.
Watch My Broadsheet for an in-depth story on the farm and the people behind the produce.
Tiny Diner Farm is located at 3957-42nd Ave S, Minneapolis.
