This week’s guest on the Gardenerd Tip of the Week Podcast is an inspiration in every way. Tasha Powell took her own journey toward growing food, and turned it into the community-led non-profit organization now called Appetite for Change, in North Minneapolis, MN.
Tasha and two other founders developed integrated programs including urban agriculture, CSA/meal boxes, restaurant/catering, youth training, and food justice outreach. Together they aim to build health, wealth, and social change in North Minneapolis.
We chat about Tasha’s personal journey to discovering the importance of fresh food, and growing your own. She also shares how doing this work as an introvert has forced her to grow in different ways.
