As you travel on Olson Highway (highway 55) in North Minneapolis, take a look at the south end of Zion Baptist Church. On the hill, you will see a beautiful garden that has flourished and produced many healthy fruits and vegetables despite the hot temperatures we had this summer.
The garden, located on 621 Elwood Avenue North, was tilled, cultivated, planted, and watered by the children of WE WIN Institute’s summer program.
WE WIN’s summer theme was, “Love, Hope, and Faith Renewed.” What better way to show love for yourself, hope for good results, and faith that the garden will produce great harvest because of the hard work and tender loving care. The children planted an array of tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, potatoes, cabbage, peppers, broccoli, kale, chard, herbs, and greens.
