Let the Water Speak
For the past few years the Folwell Neighborhood Association has been working intensely to reestablish a tight-night well networked neighborhood of residents who know and care for one an-other. The neighborhood’s community gardens are a key part of that work — as a gathering space to commune, celebrate and work together.
In cooperation with the Water Main and MPR, Folwell neighborhood association leaders are expanding their relationship-building work to include the Mississippi River. The Folwell Neighborhood is separated from the Mississippi river by an interstate highway and a sprawling industrial site.
This evening is dedicated to telling stories of the water and raising consciousness of the river in the lives of the people who live closest to it.
