Gustavus students check out Minneapolis' rail system.

Dr. Thomas Sigler took his Sustainable Cities class on a field trip to Minneapolis last week.  Two educated and informative speakers — Paul Burns from the Metropolitan Council and Ben Penner from Open Arms — met with the class to explain the mechanics of transit-oriented development and urban farming, respectively.

Ben Penner of Open Farms of Minnesota shows students an urban garden plot that will grow organic vegetables for people with HIV and cancer.
