The Northside Growers Collaborative is an off-shoot from the Fresh Corners initiative and is a joint effort with Main Street Project (MSP) and Community Table Cooperative (CTC). Fresh Corners is building a local-foods, value-based supply chain in North Minneapolis to increase access to fresh foods while building community power to affect policy, systems and environmental changes to how food is consumed in this community.

This project came out of 3 years of listening to community and building a better collective understanding of food justice issues, and will test a community generated solution to the broken food system in North Minneapolis by increasing capacity of African American urban farmers to grow, market and distribute produce.
