Resilient Communities Project (RCP), University of Minnesota
This project was completed as part of the 2016-2017 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with the City of Brooklyn Park. Brooklyn Park is home to Eidem Homestead, a historical farm attraction open to the public. The farm has a variety of recreational activities and is meant to offer insight to the lives of 20th century Norwegian immigrants, but is underutilized. As the city creates their new master plan, they wish to increase the site’s use among adults. Students in Dr. Catherine Twohig’s Designing the Adult Education Program class examined the homestead’s current programming, examined similar sites, and recommended six new programs the homestead could adopt to attract adults. The students also made recommendations about facilities updates to allow for the activities they identified. The students’ final report and presentation are available.
Report, poster, and presentation completed by students enrolled in OLPD 5204: Designing the Adult Education Program, taught by Catherine Twohig in spring 2017.
This project was supported by the Resilient Communities Project (RCP), a program at the University of Minnesota whose mission is to connect communities in Minnesota with U of MN faculty and students to advance local sustainability and resilience through collaborative,
