IOWA CITY, Iowa — Members of the non-profit, Backyard Abundance spent Saturday morning mulching for Wetherby Park’s Edible Forest.

The project allows Iowa City residents to grow and get their own food at this orchard.

Officials want to expand the project in the future.

In the next year, they’ll add a dozen fruit trees and grow herbs.

“Most people think food comes from a grocery store. We don’t realize that it actually is grown in fields on trees. A lot of people don’t know fruit comes from fruit trees,” said Fred Meyer, director of Backyard Abundance.

The non-profit partnered with Iowa City Parks and Recreation to make the edible forest happen. The state provided a $23,000 grant.
