If you haven’t seen this gorgeous video about the early history of Lincoln Park/Duluth’s West End, you really need to. It’s about 40 minutes long, so pull up a comfortable chair and make yourself a cup of tea.
So the Minnesota Department of Agriculture website’s “What’s In Season Chart,” linked here, doesn’t even include January.

Northern Expressions Arts Collective and the Lincoln Park Fair Food Access Committee are teaming up to bring lessons in good food to the “In the Park After Dark” series. Join them at the Harrison Community Center at 5:30 on January 23 for a cooking class featuring treats that are both delicious and good for you. All ages are welcome–kids under 5 must be accompanied by an adult.
