Public parks, reserves and spaces producing food

More and more people live in urban environments than ever before. The individual space varies but is generally shrinking.

Public parks, reserves and spaces producing food

The traditional New Zealand home foot-print quarter acre is now more likely a portion of that. Public reserves and parks are less and less utilised with various forms of transport opening further realms for leisure and recreation.

Also public spaces often have not had soil-enhancing treatments. The maintenance of lawns and purely ornamental trees and shrubs does not produce food. Local initiatives are under-way world-wide where communities are reclaiming or restoring public land for productive purposes.

Urban orchards can bring the young and old together and communities find purpose in getting together for mutual benefit.

Relevance to locality, history, diversity and seasonality should be observed.
