In 2014, the Department of Environmental Health and Sustainability teamed up with two local planting gurus from Aspen T.R.E.E. to jump start our City's demonstration garden with the principals of permaculture.
Eden Vardy and Paul Huttenhower helped transform our simple plot into a food forest with perennial native edibles such as thimbleberry and nodding onion. Other perennial additions include oregon grape, lemon sorrel and a historic rhubarb (a descendant of Elizabeth Paepcke's very own rhubarb plant).
Please pick anything from the garden that looks ready to harvest - just remember to give it a thorough washing before eating!
The garden is located on the east side of Aspen City Hall (130 S.Galena) next to Connor Park.
