‘Robin Watch:’ New Brighton resident finds bird’s nest, sets up camera to record eggs hatching

During Lotter’s presentation, he said the city found very low concentrations of lead in some of the city’s tap water.

Little farm in the big city


Marjorie Otto photo/Review • The Rivoli Bluff Farm, located in the Railroad Island neighborhood at the western end of Minnehaha Avenue, consists of a large garden, an orchard, beehives and a gravel garden for starting trees. New this year, a high tunnel greenhouse is being constructed, which will extend the time for produce to grow. The farm is run by Urban Roots, an East Side youth organization that employs area high school students and teaches them agriculture, cooking and conservation skills.

Walking down to the Rivoli Bluff Farm, some may forget they are still in the heart of the city as they breath the smell of fresh-turned soil and watch bees whiz by.
