Re: why aren't we planting more fruit trees? are we stupid?
if we just planted more fruit bearing trees in streets/sidewalks/parks/etc ...

if there were strawberries, cherries, lettuce, in abundance everywhere ...

we probably don't even have to work.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1516077


Good idea! But then you have to work and get the fruits in your home, because if you do not, you have no profit.

Otherwise, the state gets to tax the transaction. So.. it would be detrimental to TPTB

i was thinking that if people started to believe food was free, we'll have a much better lifestyle.

as for organization, i'm probably not the right guy to be doing that sort of thing. i just like to stay home and play video games.

Re: why aren't we planting more fruit trees? are we stupid?
The way it was always meant to be...

Everything on this planet is supposed to be free and abundant to everyone. There is more than enough fruit and vegetables on this plant to feed everyone - everywhere - for all time.

Why do we all "have to" pay to live, eat and drink on the planet we were born on? Who said so, and why?

Fruit falls from trees - for free
Vegetables grow from the ground - for free
Water falls from the sky and flows underground - for free
Fruit/Vegetables/Herbs are medicine - for free

Our society and our thinking has been fucked up beyond belief by the parasites in "control", its anger and frustration inducing to the point of depression and hopelessness because its all considered and thought of as to be "NORMAL" and "thats just the way it is"... its anything but normal, its crazy and very very very sad

It happens locally-there's a small band of guerilla gardeners who plant fruit trees etc. on abandoned or empty sections.

I've thought of this before.

Dandelions grow everywhere and they are super delicious and very healthy but they have everyone brainwashed to poison them and sell poison made specifically for them!

Asparagus is the only perennial vegetable I know of.

For real, we should be sharing seeds and plating up an Eden but that's the last thing our overlords want. Spread your idea, it will wake people up. If Governments care so much for the people they would have done this long ago.

Despite the upswing in urban gardening and the locavore movement, to date these are attempts at food self-sufficiency at the atomic level. Incredible Edible cofounder Pam Warhurst aims to accelerate such efforts, and started a project in the British town of Todmorden to grow edible crops on the town’s unused land.

Umm, because most people don't have fucking yards on property they own to allow them to? You act as if everyone has an acre of land in which to plant fruit trees. Ever hear of people who live in apartments or rent their house? Would you be so stupid as to plant a tree that costs hundreds of dollars and will take years to grow big enough to actually produce fruit on a lot you rent from your landlord?

Vermont is tops in locally grown food
Article by: LISA RATHKE , Associated Press Updated: May 9, 2012 - 9:22 AM

MONTPELIER, Vt. -- A committed "locavore," Robin McDermott once struggled to stock her kitchen with food grown within 100 miles of her Vermont home. She once drove 70 miles to buy beans and ordered a bulk shipment of oats from the neighboring Canadian province of Quebec.

Six years later, she doesn't travel far: She can buy chickens at the farmers market, local farms grow a wider range of produce, and her grocery store stocks meat, cheese and even flour produced in the area. A bakery in a nearby town sells bread made from Vermont grains, and she's found a place to buy locally made sunflower oil.

Nationwide, small farms, farmers markets and specialty food makers are popping up and thriving as more people seek locally produced foods. More than half of consumers now say it's more important to buy local than organic, according to market research firm Mintel, and Deputy Agriculture Secretary Kathleen Merrigan called the local food movement "the biggest retail food trend in my adult lifetime." .....


......... "Really what it's about is moving into a kind of food system where you're connected to the source of your food," Prentice said. "You're buying from people that you know or can meet and you're buying food grown in a place that you can easily drive to and see.

"This is more about creating an oasis really in the context of a globalized food system that's completely anonymous," she said.

But James McWilliams, a Texas State University professor who has written a book critiquing the local food movement, said people often think it solves more problems than it does.

"There's this sense that because a food is local there's automatically nothing wrong with it, and the fact is even on a local level certain foods are more energy intensive to produce than others," said McWilliams, who is a vegan. "Specifically, animal-based products, even on a local level, while they may be more efficient, pound for pound are still significantly more energy intensive to produce than plant-based products."

who said it takes years? within 3 months you can have your first batch of harvest of fresh strawberries, tomatoes, etc ...

and who said you have to plant it on your apartments? there's streets, roads, freeways, full of un-used space everywhere you go.

have a look at Forest Gardening, it's exactly what your talking about and yes if we put vast amounts agricultural land down to forest gardens we would increase food supply, increase bio diversity, sequester carbon and hardly have to do anything at all for food.

Re: why aren't we planting more fruit trees? are we stupid?
Reminds me of the old Johnny Appleseed story, he traveled all over the USA and noticed very few apple trees do he started dropping them where he went during his travels. Or at least that is how history recorded it.


We have a garden and chickens ( for eggs) but we are not far enough away from the city to have real livestock.

Here we heve to be able to keep the chickens 75 feet away from the nearest human-lived building. That we do have but for farm animals we would need a 200 foot long zone away from human lived buildings.

We can keep rabbits, mink and other small "pet" type critters as close as 12 feet but I really don;t like the taste of rabbit and they scream when you kill them, it's pretty horrible to listen to.
