It’s Not a Fairytale: Seattle to Build Nation’s First Food Forest


advertisement - learn more

I came across this article through a friend, gave it a read and thought to myself, “this is what the shift is all about”. The article discusses how Seattle is to build the Nation’s first “Food Forest”. 7 acres of organic perennial permaculture contained of hundreds of various plant edibles such as fruit trees, nut trees, berry bushes and more. It is going to be designed to be 100% sustainable and a self generating permanent equilibrium of agriculture (hence the name permaculture). It will also be accessible and free to all. Although there are many belief systems that we need to dissolve in order for a project like this to be implemented on a global scale, it is a great start. It’s amazing to see ideas like this come to fruition and it’s a direction that is necessary to take for us to work our way back to communal, peaceful living with sustenance for all and global harmony. It is beneficial for all and is based on overall health benefit in being organic produce. One step closer to manifesting a new world. The doors are being opened for us, it’s now time to walk through them!

‘Seattle’s vision of an urban food oasis is going forward. A seven-acre plot of land in the city’s Beacon Hill neighborhood will be 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 will be available for public plucking to anyone who wanders into the city’s first food forest.

 “This is totally innovative, and has never been done before in a public park,” Margarett Harrison, lead landscape architect for the Beacon Food Forest project, tells TakePart. Harrison is working on construction and permit drawings now and expects to break ground this summer.

The concept of a food forest certainly pushes the envelope on urban agriculture and is grounded in the concept of permaculture, which means it will be perennial and self-sustaining, like a forest is in the wild. Not only is this forest Seattle’s first large-scale permaculture project, but it’s also believed to be the first of its kind in the nation.’
