Minneapolis urban farming meets visual data.
After college, I managed to convince my parents to let me take over large sections of their yard to grow food. Five seasons later, we're still canning tomatoes, harvesting kale, and eating more beans off the vine than I thought physically possible.
My interest in urban farming opportunities and practices in Minneapolis was taken to a whole new level when I enrolled in MCAD's continuing education course for data visualization and infographics. I'll admit that I was not able to keep up with the coursework and reading as much as I would have liked, but I did really appreciate the course and it's ability to show me the immense options and limitations around data visualization. I feel equipped to better take on this growing need and am still just really excited about farming in small South Minneapolis yards.
