More on Urban Fruit Trees

Here’s a fun little piece on people in San Fransisco who are literally grafting the branches of fruit trees onto non-fruit bearing trunks around their city. For the record, I’m not in favor of this idea in Provo, in large part because Provo’s size seems to lend itself better to working within legal channels.

But the point the “guerrilla grafters” are making is that urban fruit production can be a major asset to a city. It’s a very similar argument I made here, when I speculated that with Provo’s high rate of volunteerism and already-abundant urban crop the city could become a leader in this movement.
