Community News - Edible Streetscape Coming To East Side

Posted by Cory Vandenberghe on

This summer, East Seventh Street will be a showcase for local food “to honor and share the diverse healthy food traditions that we have on the East Side,” said Tracy Sides, executive director of Urban Oasis.

On May 26, Urban Oasis, along with Urban Roots and the Dayton’s Bluff Community Council, will start a project called “Edible Streetscape.”

The project has three goals: To help create a healthier and more walkable environment along East Seventh Street and on the East Side in general, to honor and share the nutritious and diverse food traditions of the East Side, and to illuminate local food connections.

The project has been in the works for a few months now as Urban Oasis took in community input on which plants to grow in 10 planters along East Seventh Street.

In 2009, 275 Bates Ave., foreground, in the Dayton's Bluff neighborhood of St. Paul, could be purchased for $1 from the St. Paul Housing and Redevelopment Authority. 279 Bates, next door at right, was on the market for $5,000. Since then, 279 Bates has been rehabbed and is now on the market for $169,900. (Pioneer Press file photo: Scott Takushi)

The Louis Hansen House and Bakery at 275 Bates Ave. was built in 1884 at a cost of $800. An example of Italianate design reinterpreted for Minnesota weather, the two-story, L-shaped frame building sits on a coursed limestone foundation and under a gabled roof.

And soon, it may be torn to the ground.

In the Dayton’s Bluff Historic District, the Dayton’s Bluff Community Council is making a final push to save six vacant properties from demolition: a free home tour in an antique bus.
