Edible Gardens & Food Foraging

An Edible Park is located on Council land and is the place where edible plants are grown, cared for and enjoyed by the community in a way that complements the other uses of the park. 

Often fruit or nut trees are dotted around the park, along borders, pathways or in clusters to add diversity and amenity for park users. Plants can be harvested by anyone, but the plants must be cared for over time by the surrounding community.

This is different to a community garden because the land is not formally occupied by a particular community group. It is simply a park that incorporates edible plants in its landscape.
