5 a day

In these times of food poverty and food banks and children coming down with rickets here is an idea for you.

Starting with London lets replace all trees in publicly owned spaces (streets, parks etc) with fruit trees.

We’ll use dwarf species so that when mature anyone can pick the fruit.

Apples, pears, plum, cherries, more exotic fruits if they will grow.

There is not just the benefit of free fruit being available, there will also be jobs created, firstly to replace all the trees, then to maintain them.

I can see no downside to this.

Credit where credit is due, this is not my idea. It comes from the green fingered Rose.
