Edible Wood

The Edible Wood is a small publicly accessible (wheelchair-friendly) garden in central York. It is dedicated to plants containing at least one edible component.

It officially opened to the public on 1st August 2015 (Yorkshire Day).

A series of meandering gravel paths provide access to all parts of the garden and link Museum Gardens with the Artist's Garden, the rear entrance to York Art Gallery and Exhibition Square.

The area has a long associated with food production. Historic records indicate that the land has been used for orchards, kitchen gardens and grazing.

During the second half of the Medieval period, the area now occupied by Museum Gardens, the 'Edible Wood' and the Artist's Garden was an integral part of St Mary's Abbey.
