Imagine our public spaces full of plants that produce an abundance of fresh, delicious food each year—edible forest landscapes of fruit and nut trees, berry bushes, and more.

The Edible Trails Project exists to facilitate this transformation. 10665174_540437616091397_3863241588044670107_n - Copy In 2014, we planted two educational public forest gardens thanks to the collective energy and funding of local residents, non-profits, and businesses. Now YOU can join in the fun and support the creation and growth of public forest gardens throughout Traverse City and our whole region. Take a look at our ‘Adopt a Forest Garden’ program for more information.
