Public Food

I picked this up off my Facebook Feed. From Science Alert. A tree that has 40 kinds of fruit from it.

 

This brings up some more ideas for the #FeatherstonZenGarden. A friend suggested herb planters.

Would it not be fantastic if people could use the plantings for food? The Council keeps the public gardens tidy anyway, but when they do pull edible plants out you have to be there, or know they are doing the pulling out to get any benefit. How about we work out a way to get that food to families who need it. Distribute it somehow. Through the school? Or the Community Centre? Or the Library?

I’m not saying turn the whole area into a communal garden. Just the bits that end up planted, along with the existing Council gardens. Even some roses are edible.
