Fall Harvest Walk

Led by Jen English, October 2007

This walk includes visits to gardens and views of fruit trees along the way. Note that the fruit trees highlighted in the walk are those that are fruiting in the fall. You can adjust this walk for other seasons by taking a look for other trees. Also note that the Edible Schoolyard is only accessible after school hours (evenings and weekends), so you may want to plan your walk accordingly to visit that location. The community gardens are open on Saturdays and Sundays at posted hours, but are also viewable from outside the gates.
