Northern Plains Botanic Garden Society

Note: These trees are not yet bearing fruit. Stay tuned for future years!

Thanks to a conservation grant via the North Dakota Outdoor Heritage Fund, this educational garden includes native fruit-bearing trees, shrubs, and pollinator-friendly perennial plants. As the Edible Forest grows, it will provide a number of opportunities for community members to learn how to nurture and harvest fruit-bearing trees that thrive locally.
