Colorado Town Experiments With 'Edible Forest'

Monday, October 28, 2013

Community gardens dole out small plots of land and encourage people with limited access to fresh produce to grow their own.

Now, there’s a new twist on that model springing up across the country: edible food forests.

Imagine turning a public park into a free-for-all of community plants – and snacks.

From the Here & Now Contributors Network, Luke Runyon of Harvest Public Media reports on a new food forest planting its roots in a tiny Colorado mountain town.
