Fritz Haeg Edible Estates

Location: La Cañada Flintridge, California
Commissioned by: Descanso Gardens 
USDA plant hardiness zone: 10
Established: January 12, 2008
Size of garden:  35 x 70 feet (oval)

Descanso Gardens, a 160-acre public garden located at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains, north of Los Angeles, invited Edible Estates to create a public demonstration garden in its featured center-circle planting area for the 2008 calendar year. Unlike the other Edible Estates gardens, this one was tended by a staff of professionals at Descanso, and the food produced was donated to a local food bank. This garden was designed primarily to educate and inspire the thousands of annual visitors, who include local residents, tourists, and gardening enthusiasts.
