The Edible Neighborhoods program functions as a fruit tree orchard spread across our neighborhood.  This orchard will directly serve all neighbors living in the Edgewood/Kirkwood community by providing fresh, chemical-free, and affordable fruit to Unearthing Farm & Market. Unearthing Farm and Market is a new food initiative located on Memorial Drive providing equitable access to locally-grown and healthy food.

By purchasing this item, you will be directly supporting the Edible Neighborhood program in Kirkwood/Edgewood by providing funds for ongoing maintenance such as watering, mulching, weeding, pruning, and education!

You can donate by purchasing this item ($50) or you can send any custom donation amount to us using the methods below.  When you send the money, please write "Edible Neighborhood"
