Edible Gardens come in all shapes and sizes. This beautiful Acton landscape has orchards and vegetables in raised beds, but also has herbs as ground cover and path boundaries around the bluestone paths, fruit trees as privacy barriers around the cedar pergola, and a field of corn to hide the compost bin.
Kate Kennen from Offshoots will speak about pollination promotion and working to reconnect native ecologies followed by BeeCo, a project led by Nic Hogan and Max Vanatta, MDes ‘18, aiming to allow anybody to raise bees currently focusing on the development of a modular, climate-controlled hive that improves the survival rates of honeybee colonies
Wine + Food will be provided, and we’ll have a discussion after their presentations on applications for design and urban ecology through urban bee populations.
