Community Food Forests and Orchards

We are proud to provide concentrated edible landscape plantings across our City. Many of these initiatives are managed in partnership with community groups. All fruits and nuts grown on parkland are fair game to the public. Please harvest respectfully, being sure to leave some for others. Public access and harvest does not extend to other gardening sites including Garden Plots and Community Gardens. The public is not permitted to pick from privately grown annual gardens.
