The Common Table 2014

Minnesota State Fair Exhibit
45” x 45”

This panel was a part of The Common Table exhibit at the MN State Fair. The exhibit theme was “Local Food Stories” and this panel showcased the Central Minnesota Sustainability Project (CMSP) a nonprofit organization in St. Cloud, MN. CMSP works with primarily immigrant and refugee populations to create a "safe place" through community gardening.

"Uganda to St. Cloud Home in the Garden" is Florence Orionzi's story of immigrating from Uganda to the U.S. While this is Florence's story, she is one of many women who are a part of the thriving community that makes up the Maine Prairie Community Garden.
