Visit this historic garden - we are the first community garden in
Minneapolis to outright purchase ourselves - we are owned by our community
and have been for almost a decade. We can build and plant what we like and
not worry about losing our lease. However, because we own ourselves, we
also have to meet all expenses in creative ways - hence the garage sale.

As always, we love to have visitors so drop by for a little bit on
Saturday and enjoy the benefits of an oasis in the city.

COMGAR is for community gardeners in the Twin Cities Metro Area and
Greater Minnesota) to share timely information, seek advice from other
gardeners, and learn about resources available to gardeners.

March and Rally: Stop Foreclosures and Evictions!
Saturday, June 13, 11am (Gather) Lake Street and Clinton Avenue South,
Minneapolis. 11:15am (March), Noon (Rally) U.S. Bank, Lake Street Office,
908 East Lake Street, Minneapolis. Tell the banks and mortgage companies:
"Stop Foreclosures and Evictions! Let People Stay!"

U.S. Bank has received 6.6 billion dollars in Troubles Assets Relief
Program (TARP), yet along with other banks and mortgage companies,
continues to foreclose and evict people. On May 8, the Minneapolis City
Council passed a resolution urging banks and mortgage companies
foreclosing properties in Minneapolis to allow foreclosed homeowners to
remain in their homes after the foreclosure and to allow tenants in
foreclosed rental properties to remain in their rental homes. The City
Council resolution states: "Minneapolis homeowners, tenants, and
neighborhoods have suffered a growing number of foreclosed and vacant
homes. These foreclosures destabilize families and neighborhoods in many
ways."

Meanwhile, the banks have received billions of dollars in federal
"bailouts" while continuing to foreclose and evict working and low-income
people from their homes. The Minneapolis City Council resolution is a
"policy recommendation" to the banks and mortgage companies. It will take
the power of the people to demand that the banks and mortgage companies
institute policies that stop putting people on the street through
foreclosures and evictions. Join others in protest to deliver the message
to banks and mortgage companies to stop putting working and low-income
people out of their homes.

Initiated by: the Minnesota Coalition for a People's Bailout. WAMM is a
member of the Minnesota Coalition for a People's Bailout. FFI and Updates:

Help set up and staff our booth at the
Annual Juneteenth Celebration
Sunday, June 14th
Boom Island, 724 Sibley St NE, Minneapolis

Juneteenth is a celebration of the unofficial end of slavery, some two
years after Lincoln's emancipation proclamation when word finally reached
Galveston, Texas on June 19, 1865.  This date is recognized across the US
as African American liberation day.

One of the largest annual celebrations is here in Minneapolis and we have
a wildly popular booth every year.  It you can dedicate a few hours to
help us with the booth, you'll have fun, meet lots of cool people, and
your efforts will really be appreciated.  Set up is early--we'll be
meeting at Walker Church at 7:00 a.m. to load up and car pool to Boom
Island.

The festival itself runs 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and we'll need help
staffing the booth and tearing down afterwards.  If you can help, please
reply to this email to let us know or just show up on Sunday either at
Walker in the morning or at the booth during the festival.  This year we
will focus on stolen lives around the state as well as the RNC 8 case.
