Edible Forest and Green The Block 2013

Seeed plans to dedicate the month of March to greening the blocks of inner-city Knoxville.

Saturday, March 16, 2013, Seeed will plant its Edible Forest at the Morning Side Community Center from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

In addition to planting the fruit trees, Seeed will complete five other projects : renovating the basketball court, painting retainer wall, clearing fence line, building raised beds, and laying wood chip path.

Sunday March 17, 2013, Seeed will hold its 3rd Annual “Green the Block” from 2:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. Seeed will give away over 70 fruit trees in order to spread the Edible Forest all around inner-city Knoxville while finishing up any projects not completed Saturday.


Seeed has been giving the chance to receive a $2,000 matching grant for the maintenance of the Edible Forest. As a fundraising effort to raise our $2,000, Seeed needs your help finding sponsors to purchase a fruit tree for $43 a tree and have your tree named after you in the Edible Forest or donated to an inner-city family member.
