Edible Avalon is a program of Avalon Housing, the largest provider of supportive affordable housing in Washtenaw County, and Food Gatherers


Edible Avalon is a community gardening program that provides fresh, organic produce to tenants. The gardens are located at thirteen of our properties. Each year we had some programming designed to help tenants improve their health and nutrition, learn about gardening, and enhance their leadership skills. We also have a booth at the Ann Arbor Farmer’s Market on Wednesday evening’s where tenants sell their organic produce to the public.

Last summer was the third summer of Avalon Housing’s Edible Avalon program (in honor of the book Edible Estates: Attack on the Front Lawn by Fritz Haeg), managed by Program Coordinator Kris Kaul. From one garden in 2008, the program has grown to 12 Avalon sites. Co-sponsored by Food Gatherers and Project Grow; there were 14 site coordinators who worked with community members to adopt a garden.
