gave scores of free flowers to NoMi residents for beautification. The flower distribution took place at Zion Baptist Church with valuable assistance from Pastor Brian Herron.
|The Adventures of Johnny Northside: Being the amazing, true-to-life adventures and (very likely) misadventures of a divorced man who seeks to take his education, activism and seemingly boundless energy to the North Side of Minneapolis, to help with a process of turning an arguably-blighted neighborhood into something approaching Urban Utopia. I wouldn't be here if I didn't want to be near my child. This blog is dedicated to my 12-year-old son Alex, and his dream of studying math and robotics at MIT.|
It should be noted that Bachman's Floral (with one "n") is no relation to Michele Bachmann and her very special, unique viewpoint about the United States Census
. I, for one, CAN HARDLY WAIT for the U.S. Census so we can find out what changes have happened in our neighborhood
as a result of revitalization forces seizing on the historic opportunity afforded by the foreclosure crisis.
In any case, yeah. Free flowers. From Bachman's Floral. Very cool.
