Information from the online survey and the December public meeting will be considered in preparation for the second public planning workshop on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 starting at 5:30 p.m. in the multipurpose room of the Hamilton Indoor Recreation Center (1724 F Street).

"Edible Forest Park" is the current working name for the park and the City of Moscow is also accepting public input on the proposed name of “Harvest Park” as the official name of the park though 5:00 p.m. on Friday, February 1, 2019. Written comments on the proposed name, “Harvest Park” must be submitted to the Hamilton Indoor Recreation Center or emailed to David Schott at dschott@ci.moscow.id.us. The Moscow Tree Commission will review and consider comments provided during the City required sixty day (60) public comment period that began on Wednesday, November 28, 2018.  The Moscow Tree Commission will review comments received at their February 5, 2019 meeting, prior to making a final recommendation to the Parks and Recreation Commission and ultimately the Moscow City Council.

The park space is located along Southview Avenue, east of the intersection of Highway 95 and Southview Avenue at the south end of Moscow. This unique space is intended to provide educational opportunities and an example to the community of stewardship of a public food forest. The park is intended to create a sense of place and community pride for Moscow for generations to come.
