Urban Fruit Forests Are Real

I’ve written several times on this blog about the possibility of using public space to grow edible produce, specifically fruit. I think this is a wonderful idea, but I get the sense that some people see it as prohibitively impractical or some sort of pipe dream.

But as this article demonstrates, urban food production is very possible. The article details the plans to create an edible forest in Seattle. Though Provo is a very different city, the already-abundant fruit trees — as well as the increasing local interest in gleening — suggests that something similar could work in Provo.
