We’re thrilled to announce that Youth Farm has been awarded $750,000 in support of the Northside Youth Greenhouse. This funding was awarded through the 2023 federal appropriations bill. The Northside Youth Greenhouse is one of the many community projects funded in the Twin Cities. We thank Representative Omar for championing this project in the legislature. Thank you for believing in the longlasting and deep impact of this work!
Located at 1420 Dowling Ave N, the Northside Youth Greenhouse will be a youth-led community gathering and growing space. In this 1,700 square foot greenhouse and adjacent 1,700 square foot headhouse, youth will explore social enterprise and connect to the food system from seed to plate. This space, entrusted to Youth Farm by the Loppet Foundation, will also increase access to diverse healthy food options in North Minneapolis.

While this funding is a huge step forward for the project, we still need the continued support of our community to bring this dream into reality. As we build momentum around this exciting development, support us by simply staying in the loop! Click here to sign up for our newsletter or follow us on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter.
