Watch How this Incredible Public Food Park Feeds 200,000 a Month

by Mike Barrett, Natural Society:

It is becoming more apparent that we need to begin reclaiming our food supply through small-scale, wide-spread farming practices. We can no longer rely on Big Food to supply us with the nutritious food we need, and we certainly can’t rely on mega chemical companies like Monsanto to feed us with their genetically modified creations. This is why countless communities are embracing the giving art of local farms and supporting local food businesses. One Incredible Edible park in Irvine, California, formerly 7.5 acres of wasted space, is now an edible park that feeds 200,000 people every month!

It’s time that we each learn how to hoe a row, plant seeds at the most optimum time, and how to fix a broken-down tractor. As our elders pass this information to younger generations, we are ensuring that our food sovereignty continues. Indeed, small-scale, diversified farming is seeing a resurgence it hasn’t experienced for a long time, with often surprising participants.

    That is a fantastic project! Feeding 200K people from 7.5 acres!
    We need to recognize that all us suburbanites need to convert the ornamental trees to fruit trees and manicured lawns to veggie gardens.
    I started last fall planting fruit trees and berry bushes. I gathered all the neighbors leaves and had my town deliver a truck load of mulched leaves for free.
    I have a worm bin in the kitchen and an aquaponics garden in my bonus room.
    Biggest surprise was how fun it is. Its very empowering, satisfying, and subversive to the powers that were.
    Looking forward to Spring!
