"A Garden Community"

A historically rich neighborhood, the Bottineau community can be found in northeast Minneapolis and is bordered by the Mississippi River to the west, and to the east, University Avenue. Named after the explorer who originally bought the neighborhood’s land in 1845, Pierre Bottineau, the Bottineau neighborhood has now turned into a modern and ethnically diverse neighborhood. The current population is just over 1200 people and is a popular choice for artists in which to live and work. The Bottineau offers easy access to large city amenities while still claiming some of the suburban aspects of a smaller neighborhood.

There are several options that make Bottineau a convenient and fulfilling place in which to call home. Within the neighborhood there is a community library, a large park, and even a community garden called Mulberry Junction Community Garden. The gardens are a collaborative effort and boast more than 30 plots where residents of Bottineau have first choice of garden spaces for $10 or $20 for the entire season, depending upon the size of the plot. Organic and healthy planting and growing guidelines are encouraged, and the community garden members even contribute some of the fruits of their labors to a local food shelf. To add to the community feel of it all, there are garden tools and wheelbarrows available for use as well.
