Permaculture Park sits south of the Sciencenter, along Cascadilla Creek and boasts a remarkable number of edible plants. Re-designed as a food forest a few years ago, the added plants now offer fruit many months of the year. Discover the bounty in your backyard with a tour of the park and chance to sample the ripe fruit.
