The Edible Landscape Project: A Visiting Art Exhibit!

The Edible Landscape Project is the result of a collaborative semester-long study visualizing edible landscapes for social impact. The projects showcase a partnership between FRESH New London, Spark Makerspace, and Connecticut College’s ART 310 Design: Public Practice Studio.

Students and community partners created interactive tools to help visualize the potential of the natural environment in New London, particularly with plants that produce food. All components were created by Connecticut College students and with FRESH staff & youth, and Spark members and neighborhood residents.

Thank you to Library Trustee and Conn College Professor of Art, Andrea Wollensak, for sharing this exhibit with our library community. It is free and open to the public.
