"The yields can be tremendous: when I visited, 16,000 pounds of greens were being harvested every week. Output like that is a locavore’s dream, especially in Minnesota, where regional produce is scarce during the protracted, frigid winter. Restaurants, corner groceries, supermarkets, and a major hospital—all located in the Twin Cities—couldn’t get enough of the stuff."

@ewankeep @June @sashakovich what would be a way such a place could pay for utilities and such and just basically exist for the benefit of the community, i wonder?

@paulference backyard food growing is great! We need more!

Need a table? Come make one with people. Know how to repair stuff? Be available for people. Need food? Come get it if you live near the co-op, want to help grow food? Come do that. Surely something is already out there? If not, let's Fucking Make It.

So this article is inspiring me to REALLY WANT to start or participate in creating a hyper-local manufacturing and growing co-op. Who's already doing stuff like this in the Twin Cities that i could connect with?

Why arguments against a 70% marginal tax rate for income over $10 million is absurd (look at all that money they'd STILL have):

MSP Social.net

A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.

An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.

MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.

We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive, Streets MN, Grease Rag and The MN Tool Library. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.
