When visiting the community center in the summer, families can stop by the “Edible Courtyard” to pick free, healthy produce. Examples of foods you might find in season are cucumbers, zucchini, eggplant, spinach, kale and beans. In 2021, the raspberry plants are expected to produce berries. Check Facebook before heading out to get an idea of what might be available to harvest.
