The relationship between people and nature is widening, particularly through the disconnection of food production methods. Creating an edible landscape is a method to help close the bond between people and nature through personal food production, as tending the land invites a familiarity with the natural environment and encourages people to learn about landscape management and sustainability. In 1976, Nina Leopold Bradley, daughter of renowned conservationist Aldo Leopold, established a garden adjacent to the “Shack,” made famous in Aldo Leopold’s foundational environmental text A Sand County Almanac. From 1976-2011, Leopold Bradley documented the process of garden management, along with phenological details of the environment. This study uses an explanatory design to examine the journals to develop an edible landscape plan for an intern housing facility at the Aldo Leopold Foundation in Sauk County, Wisconsin.
