It's no fairy tale, Kenora could be getting an enchanted forest.
Keric Funk gave a deputation to city council yesterday proposing an edible forest in the city.
Funk noted the garden would be located at the corner of 5th St. South and 8th Ave. South by the Kenora Association for Living in Lakeside.
“Currently, if you know this park it's not so enchanting,” Funk said. “So we're looking at creating an edible food forest that residents would be able to participate in both the creation of the garden space, as well as enjoy for future years to come.”
Funk is working with KACL and Seeds for Change Kenora on the project, in partnership with the city.
“The main components that we're looking at are edible fruit and nut trees, shrubs as well,” he said. “There could also be vines or perennials that could contribute to that as well.”
An open house is set to be scheduled before the project moves forward.
