What happens when a permaculturist, a chef, and a policy wonk walk into a park? Why, an Edible Tree Walk of course!
Edible Tree Walk
Saturday, July 8th 10 AM – 12:15 PM
Free! RSVP required
Meet at: Johnson Park, 268 Waverley St, Palo Alto
This one-way, one-mile walk meanders Johnson Park to Gamble Garden. Sponsored by the nonprofit, Canopy of Palo Alto, walking is open to everyone, but please RSVP.
Many different edible enticements tree-line our route (orange, persimmon, fig, Italian stone pine, gingko nut, Brush Cherry, etc.). We’ll discuss how trees grow, thrive and produce the best tasting fruits and nuts, how to use them in cooking, and how to build a neighborhood fruit tree program.
