Growing for a Sustainable Community
Wozupi is a 13-acre organic vegetable garden and fruit orchard that also features a greenhouse, chickens, honeybees, and maple syrup operation (sugarbush). Visitors and volunteers are always welcome.
Wozupi's organic produce, eggs, honey, and maple syrup are available for purchase seasonally at local farmers markets, through the Tribally Supported Agriculture (TSA) produce share program, and at select local food stores. Wozupi also prioritizes education through classes on topics such as gardening, canning, composting, and the traditional Native American practices of seed-saving and cultivating medicinal plants.
Wozupi's grounds include a 13-acre vegetable garden, a 3.5-acre fruit orchard, greenhouses, a root cellar, organic gardens, and a small medicinal garden. Our heritage breed hens produce farm-fresh eggs, more than 100 beehives produce honey, and every spring our stand of maple trees turn out 100% pure maple syrup. Most of our products are certified organic and are available seasonally at Wozupi organic farmers market at Mazopiya in Shakopee, Minnesota, and Midtown Farmers Market in Minneapolis.
Education is an integral part of Wozupi's work. Wozupi provides enriching experiences through a variety of classes, tours, and educational events for adults and children. Wozupi is also home to the thriving Children's Garden, which is used as an outdoor classroom in the summers for a variety of youth groups.
