Introducing the Howard Street Woodland

Food doesn’t only come from farmland! We have a team working on a design for the small woodland along the northwestern edge of the Howard Street Farm. This 10,000 sq ft wet area currently consists of cottonwood trees and buckthorn but will become home to shade-loving edible plants such as wild ginger and leeks, ostrich ferns, American ginseng, native wild mint, trout lilies, groundnuts, and wild cherries. This will expand the biodiversity of the site from essentially 3-4 species to 30 species, including many natives.
