Forest to Table: Edibles from the Urban Forest

  • Trees Atlanta 225 Chester Ave SE Atlanta, GA, 30316 United States (map)

Forest to Table, a panel discussion and dialog, brings together an interesting trio of speakers who will conduct a conversation on native fruit trees as an essential and fascinating part of the urban forest. We’ll look at the urban forest as a source of food for both humans and wildlife, and where food is found, communities grow. Join TREES ATLANTA as we host: a novelist in search of Pawpaws, the “Atlanta Fruit Tree Man”, and a conservationist of backyard habitats. Our conversation will explore fruit trees as foraged food, cultivated fruits, and places that support all parts of the urban ecosystem. 

The expert panel will review their participation in this field of arboriculture and answer questions from the audience. Special beverages from tree-based flavors will be served. 

There is very limited parking available at the TreeHouse (112 Krog Street, Ste 7). We are located right on the Eastside Trail of the BeltLine near Irwin Street access point. Carpooling, biking, walking encouraged. 

The event is free, but we please ask attendees to register here.
