Turn Hiawatha Golf Course Into a Food Forest

Imagine a much cleaner Lake Hiawatha and a wetland teeming with life: fish, frogs, turtles, wild rice and many bird species. It is surrounded by a large park where almost everything is edible. Mixed-use trails meander past trees heavy with apples, pears, plums and cherries.  Families enjoy blueberries, raspberries and hazelnuts while overlooking a playing field.  Herb gardens, salad greens and wildflowers connect to art installations celebrating cultures and histories.  Grape vines shade picnic tables while sunflowers stand proud next to play grounds.  This is a park to inspire the soul, nourish the people and heal the land.
