This Week in Corcoran May 16 – 22

Hope for good weather this weekend, as there’s a great line-up of outdoor activities in the neighborhood:  a Neighborhood Sing-a-long in Corcoran Park, the Grand Opening of Milly’s Peace Garden, and of course, the Midtown Farmers Market.

Community Sing: Neighborhood Sing-a-long!

Saturday, May 21       5:30 singing, 6:30 – social hour

Corcoran Park 3334 20th Ave S Minneapolis MN 55407

Neighborhood Sing-a-long!

FREE FOOD – The grill will be hot so bring something to cook or enjoy a free burger!

The event will be hosted and led by Minnesota Sings, an organization dedicated to building community through leading community sings in the Metro area. Minnesota Sings uses professional songleaders to encourage full participation – no auditions, ALL voices welcome.

Questions? contact Joe @ 612-722-6473 or email corcorangrows@gmail.com

 

Community Garden Grand Opening

Sun, May 22,   2:00pm – 3:30pm

Milly’s Peace Garden, E. 38th St and 21st Ave

Our Grand Opening will be Sunday, May 22, and hopefully there will be lots of planting going on! Because the garden soil is so poor, we need all the compost and composted manure we can get! So if you have any compost in your yard (or have friends with compost) and are willing to donate it to the garden, please bring it on one of the work days. Questions? Contact CNO at 612-724-7457 or Garden organizer Anne Holzinger at 612-724-2439.
