Fruit tree and veg planting

Plant fruit trees and edible plants in available spaces, park edges etc. Encourage foraging on these rather than importing produce from overseas, producing wasteful plastic and massive amounts of co2.

Why the contribution is important

The culture needs to change. Foraging from local areas should be encouraged rather than relying on overseas companies, countries and exploitng cheap labour.

    This is a great idea, although may need to be more organised and managed. But, along with the Tree planting idea (which I have supported), this could be incorporated into that. Designated areas were trees are planted for the enjoyment of everyone, with some domestic fruit trees planted for the benefit of everyone.

    For this to reduce imports will not be so quick, but growing our own seasonal veg/fruit is the right way to go.

    Thank you for this idea. Definitely something to think about and add into tree planting schemes.
