Incredible Edible Park
The other day, while riding my bike through one of Irvine’s many bike paths, I stumbled upon the Incredible Edible Park.
I found it as a great use for an otherwise usually barren area. For me it made a great rest stop, with picnic benches to sit and eat at. Something I would have never seen from a car.
Further investigation uncovered that this is a partnership between the Orange County Food Bank, Souther California Edison, The City of Irvine, Irvine Unified School DIstrict, The Orange County Farm Bureau, and the Irvine Ranch Water District. The food grown here is one of the donated fields that helps bring over 300,000 pounds of food to the Orange County Second Harvest Foodbank.
The Incredible Edible Park is located at 15058 Harvard Ave. Irvine, CA
