See the garden in its full form with blooming plants and veggies, check out Weber’s sculptural raingarden, and meet the many community partners that helped make this project happen, including the artist, Marcus Kar, and volunteers from Youth Farm.
Please note that only street parking is available and parking is limited.
About the Project
Jordan Weber’s Prototype for poetry vs rhetoric (deep roots), developed over the course of a two-year artist residency at the Walker, reflects a deep collaboration with the local community. It will feature an urban farm growing fresh foods available to local residents, two rain gardens addressing the high pollution in North Minneapolis, and a community gathering space.
Please note: most areas of the community farm are wheelchair accessible. There are uneven surfaces as well as areas between planting beds that are not accessible by wheelchair. For more information about accessibility, or to request additional accommodations, call 612-375-7564 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
