First impression of Frogtown Farm from community ambassador Frogtown resident and gardener Kathy Donovan:
“The surprising thing about it is that there us quite a large flat area up at the top of the hill. We were told by a city of St.Paul planner that the hill is the highest point in St.Paul. When I went up there, I discovered that there is a wonderful view of the St.Paul Skyline. This will be a great place for a park and urban farming. Can you just imagine sitting at a picnic table in the cool breeze and eating your favorite picnic food!”
In late November Kathy held a community meeting in her building located across the street from the future Frogtown Park and Farm. Building residents came together sharing hot cocoa and their visions for the park. As a group, residents were excited to be getting a new park so close to their home.
