Botanic Notables: A Public Food Forest in Seattle

Last week, a plum tree was planted in Seattle. Local volunteers planted the tree in an undeveloped field that will soon be dense with lots more trees, on a sloping seven-acre swath of land in the Beacon Hill neighborhood. The forager-friendly garden will be called Beacon Food Forest, and it promises to feed, educate, and connect the community from its verdant perch just two miles from downtown Seattle. With a projected seven acres of fruits, nuts, and vegetables, it will be the nation's largest public edible landscape.
