Support East Phillips and Little Earth in their fight to Defend the Depot!

In The South Minneapolis neighborhood of East Phillips, on Dakota territory, there is a building known as the “Roof Depot.” Community members, and especially those living at the Little Earth housing complex, want to turn it into a community center and indoor farm, with rooftop solar. The city of Minneapolis wants to demolish it, to build a highly polluting truck yard and diesel fueling station.

Residents are seeking $100 million in state funding to buy the Roof Depot site from the city, and make a meaningful investment in the neighborhood. The bill has moved through the House and now needs to pass in the Senate. There are many steps to take before we can secure this funding, so stay tuned for how to support and keep up the pressure, follow the East Phillips Urban Farm on Instagram @eastphillipsurbanfarm and go to @defendthedepot for updates!
