Seattle’s “Food Forest”

Seattle is going to build the Nation’s first “Food Forest!”

I saw it this morning HERE.

From the article on Take Part:

“Seattle’s vision of an urban food oasis is going forward. A seven-acre plot of land in the city’s Beacon Hill neighborhood will be planted with hundreds of different kinds of edibles: walnut and chestnut trees; blueberry and raspberry bushes; fruit trees, including apples and pears; exotics like pineapple, yuzu citrus, guava, persimmons, honeyberries, and lingonberries; herbs; and more. All will be available for public plucking to anyone who wanders into the city’s first food forest.”

Seriously, how cool is that?? Love it!
