Star Tribune Features Common Roots and Whittier Public School

There was a short article in the Star Tribune last week about Common Roots Cafe (whose terrific local, sustainable food I featured last week) and the support they give Whittier schools in Minneapolis. Here's a quote:

Whittier, in partnership with nearby Common Roots Cafe, is aiming to inspire more of its students to eat foods whittiergrown locally, and even to grow their own food. At a community breakfast last week, kids learned how to plant their own microgreens in a paper cup [...] "We're trying to build a buzz around what passes for a healthy school breakfast," said Tara Davenport of the school's PTA. "But we also want to make them aware of local farmers and local foods, even as we're learning about global citizenship."
