According to the Star Tribune, a community garden at Inver Hills Community College is creating some big changes at the school.
According to the Star Tribune, a community garden at Inver Hills Community College is producing a lot of food—and positive changes at the school besides.

That kind of conversation, which crosses cultures and generations, improves interethnic relationships and breaks stereotypes, Hoffman said. Read the rest at StarTribune.com
