The Friends of Greenview and Pioneer Nature Areas have planted this demonstration garden for your education and enjoyment. Its purpose is to showcase interesting food plants that grow well in this area. In addition to being edible, the plants we selected for this demonstration garden are also attractive and easy to grow, thus good for the home landscape. The initial planting includes five types of hardy, low-maintenance trees and shrubs that have tasty fruits, berries, or nuts. Over time, we hope to expand the garden to include more varieties.The ‘Friends’ started this edible garden in May, 2012 by planting the following trees/shrubs, all of which are indigenous in Southeast Michigan.
