Turning hills currently only covered with grass into a food forest is serious work compared to front lawns turned into edible gardens.
Urbanites who don't really know how things grow will be able to see it up close and personal in Seattle once Beacon Food Forest becomes a reality.
Robert Mellinger lays out details on the project in Nation's largest public Food Forest takes root on Beacon Hill (Crosscut, February 16, 2012).
Harrison Design, the landscape architecture firm who helped turn ideas offered by the community into a working plan describes itself as focused "on bringing nature into people's daily lives to promote physical and mental well being. We work to make spaces that are healthy for the body, comforting to the spirit, and beautiful to the eye."
