Edible Edison

1607 Egleston Blvd, Kalamazoo


Edible Edison was created in 2010 through the Kalamazoo County Land bank program, Adop-A-Lot. A group of neighbors decided to adopt this vacant, tax foreclosed lot which was the location of a home that was devastated in a fire. The lot had sat vacant for years and the community was ready to repurpose the space to better serve the residents. The vacant lot now is home to twenty one 4’ x 8’ raised planting beds, a beautiful arbor, many wonderful perennials, and a compost pile. In the past we have grown lettuce, kale, swiss chard, cabbage, broccoli, strawberries, musk melon, watermelon, summer squash, zucchini, various peppers, various tomatoes, eggplant, carrots, potatoes, onion, green beans, and many different types of herbs.
