Discovering Frogtown: A Contextual Evaluation of the Wilder Foundation Site

Frogtown Gardens (non-profit) contacted the MDC to conduct an investigation of the abandoned Wilder Foundation site in St. Paul to evaluate its potential as an urban farm project. The study included a geophysical evaluation of the site, its development history, and its suitability as a place for an organized community farm project. The report concluded that the site was appropriate for this use and made recommendations to Frogtown Garden's steering committee regarding next steps.
