CENTREVILLE — Come out for a sneak preview of the Edible Trail at White Marsh Park in Centreville located at 200 Bloomfield Farm Lane. What are now small native tree and shrub seedlings will blossom over the next few growing seasons into a 1.5-acre trail of berry and nut producers for the public to pick and enjoy.

The Maryland Forest Service in partnership with Queen Anne’s County Parks and Recreation is offering a personalized tour and informational talk on the range of species planted and how they fit into the exciting new concept of agroforestry.

On Sept. 21 and Sept. 23, hour-long time slots will be available for up to eight people for maximum social distancing. Tours will begin at 9 a.m., and the last tour will take place at 5 p.m. Family groups are encouraged to sign up. Individuals interested in being an Edible Trail volunteer are welcome.
