The Beacon Food Forest is an ambitious edible garden project in Seattle that aims to provide free food for anyone who wants it. The seven-acre permaculture forest project is located in Beacon Hill and will eventually contain plants and trees that yield berries, apples, pears, walnuts, chestnuts and persimmon.
The Beacon Food Forest is thought to be the first edible garden of its kind. Its mission is to "design, plant and grow an edible urban forest garden that inspires our community to gather together, grow our own food and rehabilitate our local ecosystem." Do you think the idea would do well in other cities?
