Over three weeks in June and July, 18 youth from Saint Paul Park’s and Rec’s Jr. Kidventure program worked with Saint Paul Neighborhood Network, a local filmmaker, community members and historians to produce four thought-provoking documentaries exploring issues affecting Saint Paul’s East Side neighborhood as part of SPNN’s Neighborhood Video Project.
This video looks at the connections between immigration and gardening on the East Side from Italian immigrant gardens in the 19th century to Hmong community gardens in the present day. Includes interviews with members of the East Side Garden Corps – a youth development program that produces Community Supported Agriculture shares.
