What is Incredible Edible Milbridge?- Incredible Edible Milbridge (IEM) is a series of public vegetable gardens and education initiatives designed to create a community that is stronger, healthier, and more food independent. The produce at the 24 free pick-your-own raised bed vegetable gardens throughout town and the 14,000 sq. ft. Market Garden at the Red Barn Motel are free for everyone. This project started about 4 years ago and has come a long way.
What is their purpose?- They feed people but they also create a conversation about food, nutrition and the benefits of going organic.
Market Garden- Added in 2015, this 14,000 square foot garden has the potential to yield 4,000 pounds of fruits and vegetables for the community. This project has received very positive feedback from the community. Folks who aren't able to have their own garden enjoy going to the garden to pick fruits and vegetables and talk to others who share their interest.
