Seattle, Washington is building a park where you can forage for your own food! Find out why
A lot of people today are driven to think consciously about the decisions they make regarding their health. Most restaurants are attempting to follow trends towards natural food ingredients, and it's only fair that the people should have their own opportunities to eat well at home.
Seattle, Washington is among the forerunners to jump on the bandwagon of public healthy eating. They have recently announced plans to develop a 7-acre piece of land into a food forest mostly open to all kinds of foraging. What makes this effort most impressive is perhaps it's location. This aspiring eco increase is set to be built smack-dab in the middle of Seattle.
The hope behind the effort is that those who work in the inner city, the middle class, will be able to pick from the natural and delicious foods that will dot the landscape of the park.
So far the effort will be named the Beacon Food Forest and will feature apples, pears, plums, grapes, blueberries, raspberries and plenty more.
