Buchanan Street Farms is just another reason to adore the Twin Cities and the people that live here.
In the fall of 2011 while attending school for business management Michael shared a moment in his front yard that would change his life forever. Two neighbors that had lived in his neighborhood for several years gathered in Michael’s front yard after receiving some produce grown by the residents of The Buchanan House. To his amazement Michael learned that, although these neighbors had been living very close to one another, they had never met. That is the moment that Michael’s choice of career had changed. What he had learned is that simple sharing of food can bring people in a community together like nothing else can. That’s when Michael decided to change his focus to urban food systems and decided to utilize every square foot of his yard to bring fresh, healthy, locally grown, chemically free produce to his community.
