MPLS Parks Pick Your Own

The idea of pick-your-own fruit orchards are family friendly fun that many of us are familiar with. However, most all of the farms in Minnesota are outside the Metro ring and inaccessible via public transport, therefore inequitable to our low-incomce residents without transport. I would love to build a (or system of) fruit orchards at our larger Minneapolis parks. Imagine a pick-your-own strawberry patch at the Rose Gardens or Powderhorn Peach and Plum Orchard. Minneapolis holds the potential to grow delicious fruits and the potential to provide fresh fruit access to our neighbors who are unable to drive to Stillwater or Forest Lake.
