From the ashes, Amir’s garden grows a vision of the future in St. Paul’s Frogtown neighborhood


From the ashes of a fire that destroyed a St Paul home rises Amir’s Garden, named after a boy who lost his life in the fire. Frogtown Gardens and neighboring families have claimed this city lot where the house once stood, just steps away from the proposed Frogtown Park and Farm.  Here they create an urban farm and permaculture demonstration garden, complete with a Kid’s Castle, mandala gardens, Three Sisters corner, flower islands and a bird bath. Neighbor and garden manager Ryan Horton takes us on a tour of Amir’s Garden is its first growing season.

Amir’s Garden is funded and sponsored by Frogtown Gardens.
