Food for free for all - it should be our right!

Food for free for all -  it should be our right!

Plant food trees and shrubs in public amenity settings.

Why is this important?

The UK imports over half the food we consume. There is food poverty in many areas: Yet Councils across the nation plant pretty trees and shrubs in public amenity areas. How much better would it be if we could step outside and find food trees and shrubs growing where we could just help ourselves for free.

I lived abroad for a few years and there were orange trees growing wild everywhere, you could just help yourself whenever you wanted, it was great! We can't grow oranges, but there are many crops we could grow. Why can't we pick free food for all? Surely it should be our right!
