For green-thumb organizers of community gardens, nonprofit urban farms and other grassroots efforts aimed at growing healthy food, the COVID-19 pandemic poses a tricky time to invite volunteers — especially seniors — to plant, sow and hoe. Social distancing is a concern, and charitable grants and corporate volunteers look iffy this season.
Still, many say they can’t not turn soil.
“To me, if you’re a farmer, you’re a farmer. You can’t stop, whether you’re urban or rural,” said Mark-Peter Lundquist, vice president of Urban Ventures, whose nonprofit farms six acres in Minneapolis and Lakeville and delivers much of the produce to churches and nonprofits. “It’s an essential service.”
Urban growing during a pandemic? In St. Paul, Patricia Ohmans said it’s probably never been a more important time to till the soil.
Ohmans asked Frogtown residents to pick up free seeds — while supplies last — from a Little Free Cabinet in the neighborhood and sign up for plots the nonprofit owns at The Lily Pad community garden on Dale Street and a larger site called Our Village on Pierce Butler Route. Her regulars have already begun calling.
