Please help us raise money for Rachel Sandell, a Duluth East High School student, undergoing expensive treatments for liver cancer. Jillian Holmen and Stacy Holden will be leading a women’s yoga circle at Yoga North (4628 Pitt Street, Duluth, MN) from 10a-12p on Saturday, April 23.
Mamas, daughters, sisters, aunties, grandmas, friends…of all experience and acquaintance welcome. We will move and sing, chant and pray — individually, as partners, and in group poses. Maybe cry, probably laugh, and definitely send lots and lots of love (and some money!) Rachel Sandell‘s way.
All proceeds will go in support of funding Rachel’s healing. Suggested donation of $50 per pair or pay what makes you happy. Cash, check & credit cards accepted.
Register through Yoga North or call 218-722-YOGA.

I Google-mapped Duluth East High School today for various reasons and found that the corner of E. Eighth St. and N. 26th Ave. E. is “Minnesota’s oldest concrete pavement.”
Is that the cobblestone-y stuff back there, and is it seriously the oldest?

I had a chance to take a pack of kids out to a working orchard near Wrenshall, MN (pictured above) and it was just a fantastic experience, I’d never seen anything like it before, except in books. There used to be groves like this, and “wild” groves used by people and critters for sustenance all around our region, but there aren’t many left anymore according to the experts at UMD.
Imagine an apple production and consumption culture within a thriving orchardist community, small orchards dotting the landscape, filled with heritage varieties locally adapted to our region. This was the reality of the area around Duluth, Minn., during the first half of the 20th century. But the advent of the industrial food system divested this community of its heritage, although those abandoned orchards beckon our call back to a more sustainable way of life.
Last fall, I read about a new orchard coming in near 6th Ave E in Duluth’s Hillside. Today I found out about this chance to win an orchard for the Duluth Area from Edy’s Fruit Bars. Here’s a link to sign in and vote, vote early and often.
As of today Duluth was placed 3rd in the nation: Not too shabby. Hopefully if people can stay on this we can come out on top. Almost forgot: Duluth community members and organizations will get the fruit. If this is successful expect a surge in NICE homegrown Duluth pies & cobblers in the next 5-10-15 years.
Make those lists! The schedule has been posted for a while, so let’s hear everyone’s top five picks for this year’s Homegrown!!!
Make a music video and win a free pass to homegrown!
We’re looking for filmmakers, aspiring filmmakers, and anyone who has ever wanted to put pictures to music.
Kick off is April 19 at 7pm at the Homegrown Chicken Shack: 202 E. Superior St. — the same night as the Homegrown volunteer training. Filmmakers, etc, will draw songs at random and have until May 1 to create a video from the song (we can draw for you if you can’t make it tomorrow). We’ll play the finished work at Zinema 2 the Monday of Homegrown week. Everyone who turns in a video gets a free pass.
Let me know if you are interested or want me to draw a song for you.

Charley’s Subs is opened in the Mall. I always appreciate a new business, even if it’s a franchise. Where is the best sub sandwich in town?
I propose that the City only issue event licenses under the condition that tickets must be purchasable locally. For example, do I really have to pay Ticketmaster $11.37 in handling fees for a $35 concert ticket at Bayfront Festival Park this summer? A 32% markup paid to a California company? I would much rather pay any ticket markup to a local record store or nonprofit. Or, directly to the City for that matter. Anything to keep the money in our community, not exporting it to a corporation in California. Maybe I am missing something?
I’m looking into buying a motorcycle after several years of not riding. I think that a bike between 650 and 1000cc would be big enough. I have been looking at cruisers such as Yamaha V Stars, Kawasaki Vulcan and Honda Shadows and other similar bikes. I have a budget of about 3000. Any recommendations on a reliable comfortable use bike? There are so many more styles and makes since I rode last, it’s overwhelming. Thanks
The Automaton Records Media Conglomerate and the Moon is Down are both very proud to announce the release of a new EP. This Machine contains 7 songs and was recorded, mixed, mastered, and manufactured all over the past month in Lakeside. Bam! Duluth proud, y’all!
Where are all the avid Lutsen shredders at? Upon moving to the Duluth area a few years ago I had my first Lutsen Mountain experience in 2009. I was so disappointed that I had NEVER been there. We are so fortunate to have snowboarding/skiing of that quality only a short drive away, especially because you get to look at the beautiful Lake Superior while doing so, which is also possible in Duluth, but up there you don’t have the industrial eye-sore.
