Free t-shirt giveaway! A new design by our own Steve Jones FREE with $75 purchase (or for $25 each), while supply lasts.

Tons of great new inventory. New and used records available for the first time on Record Store Day.  CD sale! Save 50% off on ALL CDs in stock, only on RSD.

Outdoors: if the weather cooperates, we’ll have $2 LPs on the sidewalk and will fire up the grill out back. Hot dogs and adult beverages will be the focus of the menu.

40th Street Pedestrian Bridge Yarn Bomb by Hot TeaA freeway pedestrian bridge is probably the least pleasant place to spend time in today’s modern city. Often they’re narrow, utilitarian spaces surrounded by wire mesh cages, and every moment you’re perched inside, the exhaust and sound of cars flood your senses. They’re often covered in graffiti, and to many they seem like the epitome of urban dilapidation. It’s hard to imagine a less appealing setting.

But at the same time, these simple bridges can be the only link between neighborhoods that were cut in two by freeways generations ago. After decades of neglect, state agencies and community groups are starting to rethink how we design and build pedestrian bridges over our ubiquitous freeways.

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) Urban Agriculture Activity Plan was developed through an extensive community engagement process. The plan contains recommendations related to policy, facility, program, and service improvements to better support urban agriculture within the parks. The Board of Commissioners supports establishment of an implementation team to fulfill the goals of the plan. The role of the implementation team is to guide project planning and implementation, provide project oversight, and communicate team progress among a broad audience of stakeholders. The work of the Implementation team will guide the plan’s implementation for many years ahead.

The MPRB is now accepting applications from Minneapolis residents for three appointed positions on this team. Applications are due April 20, 2015. Appointment notifications will be made shortly thereafter. For more information about this team, read the Team Charter. Questions?

*Note–if you live in Kingfield, apply for this, and are seated on the Team please let us know at info@kingfield.org as we would love to be “in the know” on the implementation of this Plan.

While at the Park, check out information tables and earthy-friendly activities like making a seed bomb, playing a recycling game, and learning how to help our friends, the pollinators.  Be sure to bring your unwanted seeds for a great seed swap, and your old cell phones and chargers for on-site cell phone recycling by TechDump.  Learn how to use the City’s 311 application and win a free high-efficiency/energy saving light bulb (good for the planet AND your budget).  There will be presentations and information from Marianna Padilla’s Organic Gardening, Bootstrap Urban Farm, Minneapolis Bike Coalition, Sister’s Camelot, and New York Life.  Check out our Facebook page for more details about planned activities: https://www.facebook.com/events/1591892167731677/
