Harvest Festival 2022
December 11, 2022
The Fall Harvest Festival was held on September 22nd in the newly named Bridal Veil Gardens.
We talked trash with Kellie and learned about recycling in Minneapolis. Shannon explained the advantages of Evie! Free-Floating Carshare Services.
We enjoyed BF50 PlantBased food and beverages, poetry by Heartspeaks, Brijh Drumbeats and vocalists Sophie & Sarah.
A welcomed highlight was a tour in the garden by Del Hampton explaining the varieties of his award winning Dahlias!

Towerside Energy District
October 01, 2021
The vision of Towerside Innovation District always included innovation in energy use; sustainability, energy independence, and without the use of fossil fuels.
That groundbreaking sustainability project moved a significant step forward on September 24, 2021 when the Minneapolis City Council approved a loan for the construction of an aquifer thermal energy storage (ATES) system.
Chroma Zone Mural Festival
September 27, 2021
It started as an idea, to install large outdoor murals on the vast walls of a gritty industrial area of Saint Paul. That idea became reality through a founding partnership with the Creative Enterprise Zone (CEZ), a city recognized district and nonprofit organization dedicated to attracting and supporting creative people and businesses.
