Parkland celebrates grand opening of Campus Food Forest


Parkland College recently celebrated the grand opening of its Campus Food Forest in Yorkton. The food forest includes 30 fruit trees and shrubs that will produce a variety of fruit including apples, pears, sour cherries, haskaps, and saskatoon berries. The project will provide shade and make the campus more visually appealing, while also feeding the local community, as everyone—including students facing food insecurity—will be able to pick and eat the fruit. “By planting trees and shrubs that produce fruit, nuts, seeds, berries, and pods, this will help reconnect people back to their local sources and build community,” explained the college.
