Tour and soil discussion with Urban Roots at Rivoli Bluffs Farm

Join Extension and the Twin Cities Metro Growers Network for an educational tour of Urban Roots' Rivoli Bluffs Farm and Restoration Site. This is the last Twin Cities Metro Growers Network event of the year!

There will be a guided walking tour and opportunities to learn about the many on-site projects Urban Roots is involved with, including ecological restoration work, an orchard, hoop houses, a medicine garden, a nature path, a community garden, and a community space.

The farm has been trialing cover crops and new ways of managing their soil's nutrients, which will be a special focus of this tour. University of Minnesota Extension Educators will also share soil management practices and soil compaction research that has been conducted at the farm in cooperation with the farm staff.

Urban Roots is a youth development and employment organization that builds economic and educational opportunities for under-resourced BIPOC youth. The Twin Cities Metro Growers Network is a collaboration between SFA and the University of Minnesota Extension.
