Eco3.22 PRAIRIE Urban Food and Ecology VISTA
 
 
 
PRAIRIE is a MN non-profit focused on equitable food production, ecological research & demonstration, land stewardship, social renewal, and creating access to land, training and resources with BIPOC and other underserved individuals. This project pilots several interrelated initiatives that will impact local urban food systems and ecological services including water quality, carbon sequestration, and pollinator habitat. It will further impact educational opportunities and career pathways as youth & adults learn employable skills in regenerative agriculture, and ecology-related fields such as soils, water quality, food systems, and social services dealing with food and environmental health.
