Duluth began experimenting with "public edible landscaping in 2012 when the Park Maintenance Division organized the planting of apple and cherry trees in public parks.

That project has led to an effort called "Edible Duluth," a push to develop sustainable and maintained "edible landscapes" of fruit trees and vegetables on public property.

The Duluth Community Garden Program (DCGP) is just one of the organizations working closely with the project, and Jahn Hibbs, Executive Director of the DCGP talks about how the community can get involved.

She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland.
