Don’t Forget! It’s Give to the Max Day!

November 13, 2014
Today is Give to the Max Day in Minnesota!
Here at The Minnesota Project, we advance sustainability for communities across Minnesota every day.  In 2014:
  • Fruits of the City Logo-roundOur Fruits of the City program organized hundreds of volunteers to glean over 30 tons of fresh and healthy fruit for Minnesota food shelves and received the prestigious Environmental Initiative Award for Food Stewardship.
  • Our Energy Program was an Environmental Initiative Awards finalist for our LED Lighting for Poultry project that will save poultry farmers over $2,200 annually in reduced energy consumption.
  • Our Dairy Efficiency project partnered with 57 of Hastings Cooperative Creamery’s dairy farmers to help them identify and implement energy savings through the use of smart technologies and practices such as plate coolers, energy efficient lighting, variable speed drives and more.
  • ggp-page-001Our Garden Gleaning Project worked with area gardeners and farmers markets to collect and donate nearly 14,000 pounds of fresh vegetables to those in need.
  • And lastly, as a result of our work with starting community orchards, school gardens, and our Micro-Farm, we’ve transformed over 12,000 square feet of unused space into edible landscapes. Our Micro-Farm, alone, has cultivated nearly 2,000 pounds of produce for The Food Group food bank.
