Food forests are a type of community garden that mimics a natural landscape, that anyone can freely harvest. Though they exist in a few other places, they're illegal on land in New York City. The "food forest" on a barge will dock at local piers

If you are not allowed to do something by government rules...find another way to do it...legally of course. Smart people doing a wonderful thing.

As they say if there is a will there is a way. This is excellent and what an opportunity to feed people, expose them to new foods, new ideas about how to grow food.

Imagine that, illegal to grow a food forest. How stupid is that. Very stupid I'd say.
