The Edible Way Project is a "way" of development of an edible landscape and creating an edible "way" by placing movable planter bags in spaces along the street, and planting vegetables in cooperation with the community. This aimed at the following. 1: Expanding the edible landscape; in order to contribute to people's communication and beautification of the area by using edible landscape in empty spaces. 2: A common kitchen; utilizing vacant houses through co-eating activities which utilize harvested products, create visible relationships, and builds a societal safety net.
