What If… Street Garden Edition

What if the streets were filled with fruit and vegetables along with plants of beauty.

I’ve always imagined a world where the sidewalks were lined with herbs, fruit trees, and tomato plants instead of half-dead grass. Could you imagine if restaurants and cafes went to their back lot to pick the cilantro for your salad?

Community gardens could take place alongside roadways, and anyone could help themselves. If we grew and cultivated a community of gardeners, I bet hunger would decrease substantially. Although, I realize it might take time to get to a point of self-sufficiency like with building compost/soil or saving seed reserves.

This idea is not original to me. In fact, this is taking place in select parts of the world. One of my favorite examples is of Detroit. Check out this link to read more about the journey and success to make this “what if” a reality.

If you see a vacant lot, or a barren street, I hope this post inspires you to at least plant a seed there!

As always,

In Soil We Trust,

  1. Dear Tiffany,
    Thank you for choosing to follow my blog, Bobbing Around. I hope my words will be of service to you for a long time.
    We do share at least one interest in regenerative agriculture. For one thing, more general use would reduce being on Poison Planet.
    You may be aware that I always have a free book on offer to followers. Right now, it is Lifting the Gloom, and am happy to email you a free copy.
