Foodscaping Downtown Mpls

grgardens-1Green Rock Apartments is growing veggies in the median! A long narrow space between parking lots at our downtown Minneapolis location on Washington Ave is now home to all sorts of veggies: broccoli tomatoes, tomatillos, peppers, eggplant, bean, and kale. Plus we’ve got a giant wormwood plant and climbing morning glories, and of course, everything here is organically grown without the use of chemicals.

It’s what we like to call foodscaping – growing edible plants in places where we might otherwise put grass, flowers or shrubs. We have taken this approach to all of our properties, providing the perk of fresh veggies to our tenants.
