MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Spring has sprung in Minnesota, which means planting season has begun!

For those interested in learning how to plant and harvest local produce, a new class is available at Seward Community Co-op.

Seward Co-Op’s Friendship Store is hosting “Eating Wild” on Wednesday, May 10.

Guests are invited to come and learn about harvesting wild produce through a tour and tasting at the co-op. Farmer Rufus Haucke, of Keewaydin Farms, will discuss his produce program at the southwestern Wis. farm and will share recipes that use local ingredients like watercress, wild ramps, nettles and more.

The class takes place from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. It cost $10 for co-op owners and $12 for the general public.

For those who may not be able to make Wednesday’s class, Seward Co-op is hosting another class on Tuesday, May 16.

Tuesday’s class features Andy Fisher, author of “Big Hunger: The Unholy Alliance Between Corporate America and Anti-Hunger Groups.” Instead of focusing on planting and harvesting, Fisher will speak about his book and hunger in America.

The class will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. Dinner and drinks will be served. It is free to attend, but guests must register online.

Seward Co-Op’s Friendship Store is located at 37 E 38th Street in Minneapolis.
