U of M Extension Master Gardeners train public housing residents to beautify their surroundings, grow their own food and make their high-rise apartments and town homes feel more like home. The residents do this by becoming Garden Mentors. They take on leadership and facilitation responsibilities in their neighborhood community garden. Garden Mentors currently work the gardens at six high-rises and one town home development.

The schoolyard garden at Bruce Vento Elementary in St. Paul continues to grow, with Extension and other parts of the University of Minnesota working together. In 2018, seven Extension Master Gardener volunteers from Ramsey County funded and assisted students and staff with an overhaul of eight raised garden beds they had built in 2015, making them more accessible for all types of gardeners.
