Nourish: Film, Food, and Community for the Mind, Body, and Soul is a project we piloted last year and hope to expand. In partnership with LSP we offer monthly events for community to gather together, break bread, watch a documentary related to community gardening, urban agriculture and food systems, and have dialogue about what we are learning together. Last winter we held 4 events in the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis. These gatherings were well attended and evaluation surveys indicated that the community is hungry to be convened in this way. New relationships were formed, community was built, and neighbors launched growing projects as a result. This year we intend to expand and offer the same events in the Frogtown neighborhood of St. Paul and in North Minneapolis.
