-The story of our Fruits of the City program, told by the community it serves and the partners who make it happen.


After a great 35+ years working in the areas of rural development, recycling, renewable energy, farm energy efficiency and local foods, The Minnesota Project is dissolving. We have moved our programming to great new homes (Local Food is now at The Food Group & our Energy Program has gone to UMN) where they can grow and thrive. The Board of Directors would like to thank all who made the great work of the last three decades possible.
