The Forever Saint Paul Challenge invited Minnesotans to submit their ideas on how to make Saint Paul an even better place to live and work. The winning idea will receive $1 million to help with its implementation. The Saint Paul Foundation hired me to create videos for the three finalists, as a way for Minnesotans to learn of the ideas in an entertaining way and then vote for their favorite idea.
One of the finalists was Urban Oasis, submitted by Tracy Sides. The Urban Oasis brings together food, nature and culture to transform existing space at the Bruce Vento Nature Sanctuary into a one-of-a-kind signature food hub. See how this idea aims to make Saint Paul a national destination for local food systems done right.
