An Urban Adventure Race participant pins up a screen print to dry

Early fall 2017, Highpoint participated in the Spark-Y Urban Adventure Race. The event was organized with the help of CitySolve, and was a team building scavenger hunt that took place in Uptown, Minneapolis. At Highpoint, participants screen printed images of plants in our rain gardens. Once their printmaking task was complete, they scrambled off to other participating organizations in the Uptown area.

All proceeds for the event went to Spark-Y Youth Action Labs, a Minneapolis based nonprofit that provides youth with opportunities and workshops to teach them about sustainability and entrepreneurship. We were excited to be able to help such an amazing organization, and we look forward to future partnerships. Find more information about Spark-Y and the great work they do at spark-y.org.
