Holding the vision that one day, every Central Minnesota household will utilize sustainably grown or ethically produced foods and services, CMSP has a focused mission to facilitate local, sustainable food productions and markets through education and community building for a diverse and inclusive Central Minnesota. Just as the Earth thrives on biodiversity, we believe that communities also thrive when fully embracing the diversity of all individuals and families.

“Regardless of geographical region or culture, gardening is perhaps the most common and shared experience of nature.”
