Seattleís vision of an urban food oasis is going forward. A seven-acre plot of land in the cityís 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 cityís first food forest.

Maybe this will someday become as commonplace as public libraries.
