Organization: Urban Artifact
Help update the Northside neighborhood fruit map!
Meet at 9:30 am in the Urban Artifact Courtyard.
There will be a short lesson from professor Alan Wight, learning briefly about native fruit and nut trees and what we've found in the neighborhood already. Then we'll head out and walk Northside gathering data.
Expect to spend up to a couple of hours in small teams (bring a friend!) and meet back at Urban Artifact to share with a Fruit Tart!
Alan Wight teaches at The Christ College of Nursing and Health Sciences and Cincinnati State Technical and Community College, and is the School and Community Forest Garden Liaison for the University of Cincinnati. Alan works with schools and communities to create maps of their food-related assets and plant edible forest gardens. His maps have been featured in Tracing the Ground and are available through The Central Ohio River Valley Food Guide.
He is currently leading a project in collaboration with Green Umbrella to create a beautiful coffee table book, Cincinnati’s Foodshed: An Art Atlas – Past, Present, & Future, that tells the story of our region's local innovations that have changed the global foodshed.
