Beacon Food Forest organizers are hosting a final design celebration next Tuesday, September 20, from 6:30-8:30 pm at the Jefferson Community Center (3801 Beacon Ave. S.). Those who attend can see the final schematic design, enjoy free food, tour the garden site by flashlight, and celebrate the end of this phase of the project.
Nearly 100 community members and other local advocates of urban agriculture worked together with the Harrison Design Team on a design for up to 7 acres of land located directly west of Jefferson Park. The Food Forest will include a variety of crops, a community gathering space, and a children’s area.
The Food Forest organizers have a Facebook page with further information about the project.
