Plant-Grow-share's community Harvest Feast: 5:30 - 7:30pm

Join us to celebrate another fruitful season of our urban food growing and community building program. Harvest Feast will include a FREE meal prepared by a local chef, cooked on an open fire, with veggies grown in our community garden.  We will start gathering at 5:30pm and ease into a sit-down meal around the fire at 6:00pm. Please bring your own chair or blanket if needed. All are welcome at this event.

We hope you can join our PGS family in sharing stories of food around the circle and sample meals prepared by our PGS participants inspired by the veggies they have been learning to grow in their gardens this year.

Free Screening of Dumpling and On this Spot: Southside Stories Vol. 2

Dumpling is a short film by Xiaolu Wang based on her lived experience of moving from China to a predominantly white, rural American town when she was 14. The story takes place on Xiao Xing’s first day of high school after the move, where she begins to feel othered and isolated in her public school cafeteria. She preserves her identity by eating dumpling she brought from home. Dumpling blends traditional narrative with magic realism to reflect on the struggle to belong.

In On This Spot: Southside Stories Vol. 2, Daniel Pierce Bergin explores short stories about African American south side history through a live documentary screening. The second installment of On This Spot: Southside Stories features Judge Pamela Alexander and Judge LeJune Lange, both are pioneering legal leaders and both are products of the historic Black community of south central Minneapolis. Their reflections are combined with the filmmaker’s live observations in this short interactive documentary film.
