Colorado Town Experiments With 'Edible Forest'

Listen Now:
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.
