Seeds of Success

Seeds of Success is a program in Lincoln Park that was created in 2010, as a way to provide people with transition employment opportunities to part-time gardeners, where they learn job skills and get job experience.  Seeds of Success has now evolved to having a focus on providing food access thru a Farmer’s Market at the Harrison Community Center.  This current focus addresses the challenges of food access and food insecurity in the Lincoln Park neighborhood.

As a program of Community Action Duluth, Seeds of Success has many things going on:

  • The Farmer’s Market at the Harrison Community Center – winter hours are the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month, from 4 to 7 PM; summer hours are every Thursday from 4 to 7 PM.  There are also people selling baked goods and things other than produce.  EBT cards can be used to buy produce, and Seeds of Success matches the EBT purchases dollar for dollar up to $15 ($15 gets you $30 of produce).
  • Power of Produce or “Pop” Club – a program for kids, each week a child gets $4 of produce for free.  This empowers kids to make their own food choices, it expands the range of produce that they are exposed to, it brings more families to the Farmer’s Market, and it gives kids a chance to talk to the farmers about growing produce.
  • There are also programs that include live music, gardening workshops thru the Duluth Community Garden Program, potluck and family activities thru Northern Expressions Arts Collective (“NEAC”), and cultural crafts thru the Lincoln Park Children & Families Collaborative.  All activities are free and open to the public.

The Summer Celebration for the first summer Lincoln Park Farmer’s Market will be June 14.  There will be free food and activities, and lots of vendors.  See Facebook–Seeds of Success, or Seeds of Success–(Community Action Duluth’s) website for more details.

Help Sponsor the UMD Internship In Lincoln Park

Destination Duluth has seven interns from UMD working with them this semester. Sponsors of this program are able to have interns promote their business by writing about it, taking photos, promoting your business on Facebook, and even possibly having a drone shoot video of your location.

This is a great intern program that Destination Duluth is managing, and they are looking for additional sponsors to help cover their costs. It can be a tremendous benefit for your business–these interns are creative, smart and enthusiastic, and have experience in marketing and writing. By being a sponsor you will be supporting a very worthwhile program in Lincoln Park.

Please check out Destination Duluth’s website at for all the great things they do to promote Duluth. Contact Jerry Thoreson of Destination Duluth to find out more about their intern program. He can be reached at
