Master Urban Farmers!

Stone’s Throw is a partnership of six farmers who have chosen to uproot from the country in order to farm sixteen vacant lots in the Minneapolis area. Their crops are sold through the Community Supported Agriculture program, and local restaurants.  Eric Larson, a Stone’s Throw farmer, says “by growing where we live, we are greatly reducing our impact on the Earth, while empowering city-dwellers to take control of their food supply.” Urban Farming has had a long history, which you can read about here, which has both beautified cities and sustained populations through economic hardship. Follow Stone’s Throw’s blog for reports on weeding, crop covering and the impact on Minneapolis food supply!
