    Dinner/Evening Presentation

    2640 Minnehaha Ave.
    Minneapolis, MN 55406

    4:00 pm - 7:30 pm 

    Literally, Wood From The Hood will show how they take diseased, fallen and downed trees from our Twin Cities neighborhoods, tag them with zip codes, and breathe new life into them with new uses.  Their sustainable initiatives use wood working skills and convert the salvaged trees to higher uses than what might otherwise end up as wood chips. We'll tour their shop and see the magic behind the beautiful and unusual results. Wood from the Hood had their skills on display at LEED buildings in downtown Minneapolis.   

    Registration Deadline is: Tuesday, January 2, 2018
