The Splendid Table: Reclaiming the Front Yard with Edible Estates


 
How about turning your front lawn into an edible masterpiece? The masterful part is thinking how to turn this flat, green space into something that invites us in, nourishes us and perhaps starts changing our community. 2pm Sunday on the News Station.

This is what artist and architect Fritz Haeg calls an edible estate. It's one of the flock of projects he's created around the planet. They all involve bringing people together and seeing new potential. Haeg partnered with the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis for his year-long series of projects called Fritz Haeg: At Home in the City. He is the author of Edible Estates: Attack on the Front Lawn.
