Partnering for Edible Landscapes
Edible landscaping is a rapidly spreading idea around the world, switching from ornamentals to edibles - plants that give back by not only looking good, but also providing fresh, delicious produce to consume. The best motto: EAT YOUR YARD !
Transition Bay St Magarets has partnered with two local non-profit groups in the Spring 2014 to install edible landscapes. These projects occurred following our successful and sold-out Edible Landscaping Workshop that took place in early May 2014.
Transition Bay is advising other groups, and we would like to help yours as well. Please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
