The tour is entirely outside, and will last approximately 45 minutes. It is important to dress appropriately. We recommend clothing to allow confort in the outdoors, and rain boots or old shoes that can get dirty. Conditions can be muddy or dusty depending on the weather. Anyone who is sensitive to dust or who has physical limitations with walking on uneven surfaces should keep this in mind. Hard hats will be provided, safety vests and safety glasses for all.
Tour participants will see firsthand how food waste and yard waste are turned into environmentally beneficial compost. They will get an up close look at the equipment in operation and a detailed explanation of the process from start to finish. Questions are encouraged.

Multiple notifications make it easy to do your part to help the environment, and avoid a ticket and tow
Public Works crews are gearing up to start the City’s comprehensive street sweeping program to clear away the grime from winter. To let the ice and snow melt so sweepers have full access along the curbs, the City has scheduled Tuesday, May 1, for the first day of sweeping. Drivers should watch for temporary “No Parking” signs to avoid a ticket and tow.
Starting May 1 for approximately four weeks, sweeping crews will take care of more than 1,000 miles of city streets in addition to sweeping alleys. To make sure the crews can do the most complete job possible, temporary “No Parking” signs will be posted at least 24 hours in advance to make sure streets are clear of parked vehicles. Drivers need to follow street sweeping parking rules or they may have their cars ticketed and towed to the Minneapolis Impound Lot.
Two free gardening classes are back at MLK Park this spring and summer, led by friendly Hennepin County Master Gardeners.
