Paint Paint Paint all the way to Harvest Fest!

Youth Farmers really like to paint.  We’ve painted our sheds (inside and out), signs, benches, numerous tools, our trash can lid, t-shirts, and even our van.  So when we stared at this blank, grey, leaky, cinder block eye-sore we knew just what to do.  Farm Steward Alice Martin has been working steadily since last fall with west side youth, all-stars, and LEAD staff  to add some more color to our garden.  We will be unveiling the completed mural next Friday at our Harvest Festival.  Be there! – August 9th 5:30pm to 7:30pm at 690 Livingston, St. Paul, MN 55107.
