Thanks to a Blue Earth County Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP) grant, local community organizations that receive produce from the Blue Earth County Community Farm will have access to additional varieties of locally grown produce with the addition of new fruit trees.


Living Earth Center, the organization that manages the Community Farm, identified a number of needs at the Farm and in the community. The resulting project, supported through grant funds, involves building a new shed, acquiring some additional gardening equipment and adding fruit trees.
