Edible Landscape Project
The plan was to create a garden that was both beautiful and productive. I have no city restrictions on what I plant in my urban front yard but I wanted to create a garden that demonstrated how beautiful food production could be and challenged peoples idea of what a vegetable garden had to look like.
In 2015, the garden consists of sixty varieties of plant, with over fifty of them being edible. The landscape is producing fruit, seeds, vegetables, herbs and edible flowers. Best of all the garden is sparking discussion with neighbors and drivers by about home food production and all that lawn care!

I wrote a feature story about the garden for The Providence Journal newspaper and you can see the online version here.
