Fundraiser for Edible Edmund Alley

North Country Food Alliance has launched a fundraiser to build the Edible Edmund Alley, a mini-forest garden that will be planted along an alley that intersects Edmund Avenue in a high-traffic area of St. Paul. Native fruit trees and shrubs such as juneberries, wild plums, and currants will be planted on this parcel. As the garden grows it will become a site for foraging workshops, as well as a source of free fruit for the community.

This garden will serve the needs of the community by:

  • Providing free educational opportunities to get involved in the process of planting and maintaining fruit trees and perennials.
  • Offering donation-based foraging workshops that explain how to identify, harvest, and prepare wild foods.
  • Creating a location where passersby will be free to pick the edibles. 
  • Donating fruits to the Keystone Community Food Shelf based in the neighborhood.
