Forget to pack a lunch? No problem if you live in Seattle. The the city’s Beacon Hill neighborhood will soon be home to a seven-acre "Garden of Eden" 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 free for the taking!
They're calling it a food forest because it's perennial and self-sustaining, like a forest is in the wild, the first of its kind in the nation. For more information, visit the Beacon Food Forest website.
