Welcome To The Gardens!
In 2014 the Urban Farm and Garden Alliance (UFGA) brought together 6 unique community garden plots in the Aurora/St. Anthony and Frogtown Neighborhoods: Lexington Commons, Pilgrim Baptist Church, Morning Star Baptist Church, Victoria Community, CDC Greenhouse Garden, Aurora/St. Anthony Peace Sanctuary Garden. The Alliance of these six gardens serves to share ideas, resources and co-host educational workshops and summer activities and events through partnerships with other organizations and institutions including Bethel University, Gardening Matters and AfroEco. These partnerships and relationships have been important for creating access to parks and healthy nutritious foods for residents in neighborhoods that have suffered the consequences of predatory loans, high levels of unemployment, and a complicated history of Hwy 94 severing the historic Rondo neighborhood of St. Paul, Minnesota.
