Interesting. I like to forage in the wild for apples and other edibles, many are tasty.

Wonderful. There are food forests in various neighborhoods designed to let anyone walking by to take what they need (example: http://www.takepart.com/article/2012/02/21/its-not-fairytale-seattle-build-nations-first-food-forest). Sort of urban foraging - spread the wealth and health. Portland's dirt alleyways have been turned into food plots for the neighbors. P-patches are springing up in empty lots. And my cherry tomato plant yielded 2 cups of yumminess this summer.
