The Art of Food in Frogtown & Rondo: a collaborative community project

The Art of Food in Frogtown and Rondo began in 2015 when four community-based organizations -- Frogtown Farm, the Asian Economic Development Association, the Urban Farm Garden Alliance, and Public Art Saint Paul -- came together to explore ways to engage our organizations and communities to creatively cultivate the development of a strong community food system.  We have been working together with local residents and artists, across cultural and geographic barriers, to form a plan for investing in the future of food in our communities. With art and food at the center, we have been eating in community, creating spaces for sharing our food experiences and values, archiving what we’ve heard, and developing future visions for a stronger and more equitable community food system. Stay tuned for an update on the next phase of the project!
