Passersby, teachers, and onlookers would often comment "There's food growing in there?" because it looked like a grassy prairie from the outside.
2012 Highlights at Emery CI:
This year we are starting to transition the Emery Garden into a food forest space. The goal will be to plant perennial food bearing plants, including fruit trees, berry bushes, herbs, and flowers in formations called Guilds.
Guilds are groupings of plants that grow well together and often benefit each other in various ways. An example is an apple tree, surrounded by perennial herbs and legumes.
