“Our goal is to create a beloved community and this will require a qualitative change in our souls as well as a quantitative change in our lives” ~ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Yesterday, Youth Farm was honored to have participated in Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. celebrations at Powderhorn Park. Alongside members of our “beloved community”, PPNA, Minneapolis Parks and Recreation, Mixed Blood TheaterVoice of Culture, and 800 community members we ate lunch together, witnessed drumming and theater performances, and closed the event with dancing! So grateful to share the day with our neighbors.

Zainab, Ellesha, and Fatumo prepare to serve lunch. Shout out to Zainab who organized our Project LEAD to make 12 gallons of soup for the event and ran the kitchen!
