Urban Garden Forest For Free

“The goal of the Beacon Food Forest 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.

(Goals include) public health by regenerating our public land into an edible forest ecosystem. We work to reduce agricultural climate impact, improve our local food security, provide educational opportunities, and celebrate growing food for the benefit of all species. “

A recent issue of Vegetarian Times notes,  "At a new pubic garden in Seattle, anyone can stop in and pluck a pies worth of fresh berries--no cash required.  By early summer, the Beacon Food Forest will offer two edible acres."
