Portland becomes a perennial food forest

We’re hearing a lot about eating local as one of the best ways to reduce your carbon footprint. So increasing the amount of food grown in urban areas seems to make sense.

In this video, depave.org instigates the conversion of a disused parking lot in Portland, OR, into a community garden and gathering place. The term they use is "perennial food forest." It’s a concept new to us, but certainly appealing.

Thanks to Elizabeth Press of Streetfilms for the video.
