Edible Bus Stop

Transit riders at one Red River Road bus stop are now able to snack healthy over the summer—on crunchy pea pods, mini cucumbers and ripe tomatoes. The veggies grew in a mini garden next to the bus shelter, planted and cared for by EcoSuperior staff , with Food Strategy support and signage from Thunder Bay Transit. The edible bus stop promoted friendly, enjoyable public transit, as well as locally grown food and healthier snacks. Food gardens in unexpected places show people how easy it is to grow vegetables, and caring for the gardens helps build a sense of community.
