The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Cultivate NSP: Community Garden Policy Participation Proposal Prepared for the City of North St. Paul.

Campbell, Jenna, Phyllis (Carol) Hejl, Caroline Miller, William Risse.

Produced by students in PA 5253: Planning Participation Processes, fall 2013 (Instructor Carissa Schively Slotterback, Humphrey School of Public Affairs) as part of the 2013-2014 Resilient Communities Project partnership with the City of North St. Paul. 

In recent years, there has been some interest among residents in North Saint Paul to develop community gardens. The City recognizes urban agriculture as a growing trend that can improve sense of community, encourage healthy eating, and improve food security through access to locally produced food. However, there is currently no formal policy or process in place for community gardens.

In fall 2013, an Urban Planning course in public participation processes designed a participation process the City can use to develop a community gardening policy and identify key garden site opportunities in the community. This report is the work product of 1 of 2 teams in the course. The report from the second team is CURA call number RCP-048.
