  Enjoy the Flavors,

Save Some for Your Neighbors!

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. Imagine kids, adults, local businesses, and organizations all working and learning together to repair the ecosystem while increasing access to local, sustainable food. 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.
