Our Backyard

Quick: Where’s this?

You may be tempted to guess the name of your favorite rural Midwestern township, but no! Those lovely cornstalks are growing in the Standish-Ericsson neighborhood of south Minneapolis, right in PRG’s back yard.

Dedicated as we are to strong, sustainable neighborhoods, we at PRG were thrilled last year when we connected with a group of gardeners from Corcoran GROWS who were looking for some nearby land to grow veggies together. We just happened to have what they were looking for: a sunny lot neighboring ours, which we’d long been wanting to put to better use than our feeble attempts at growing a lawn.

At the end of its first season, Milly’s Peace Garden is looking great. Thank you, gardeners, for bringing good, green, growing things to PRG’s block!
