Planners of a new urban farm in St. Paul are asking neighborhood residents to help decide what the farm will look like, and how it will run.
The project is part of a 13-acre park planned for the Frogtown area. It's been in the works since the Wilder Foundation decided to sell the land.
"It will be a place for community members to come together to learn about food, to teach each other about food, to discuss food, to celebrate food," said Rick Heydinger, a Frogtown Farm board member.
The City of St. Paul, The Trust for Public Land, and the Frogtown Farm board are working together to create the Frogtown Farm. St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman pledged about $1 million to the Frogtown park and farm in his 2013 budget.
Community members are invited to help Saturday at a daylong meeting at the Rondo Library in St. Paul. The meeting was scheduled for 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The farm is expected to be up and running in 2015.
