Episode 10: Follow Up with East Phillips Neighborhood Institute's Indoor Urban Farm
Back in March, we spoke to community leaders from the East Phillips Neighborhood Institute (EPNI) about their fight to turn the old rooftop depot into an indoor urban farm. This plan, put together by a diverse coalition of community groups, has been thwarted by the city at every turn in their quest to build a parking lot. Despite the city's efforts to stifle community organizing, the fight continues. Join us in this discussion with organizer Joe Vital and former MN congresswoman Karen Clark, who have helping to lead this fight for years.
