Could this be the end of hunger? ~Stevi

This very well could be another one of countless internet hoaxes, however, I hope someone wouldn't be so cruel. If it isn't, this would one of the most brilliant moves ever made towards putting an end to hunger in this country. Think about it: fields of fresh fruits and vegetables for everyone and anyone.

Much of the homeless population deals with untreated mental illness; some that intensities could be dulled by the benefit of fresh fruits and vegetables. Would this mean much of the homeless would start to feel better about themselves, thus turning their lives around?

Not to mention families who do not have access to such produce who are on welfare or other government subsidies. What would the future hold for them when they're able to access vital nutrients for free?

Ok, I may be getting a little ahead of myself here. My point is, I think this would revolutionize our future. What do you think? Comment below!

Maybe, but...
I remember seeing this same story a couple years ago. Check out the Beacon Food Forest in Seattle. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beacon_Food_Forest I was always a bit leery about how this would work. If locals would walk in and take a small amount to use at their home, great. But what about the greedy S.O.B. that picks the trees clean and sells them for a profit? And who takes care of the area, like keeping the weeds down, or cleaning up the trash that will inevitably blow in? I'm not usually a glass half empty kinda guy, but this idea seemed like heartache waiting to happen.

Mayflies: faschinating, or horrifying? You decide.
The mayflies were out in full force over the past couple days. Now I've heard about these insects over the years, but have never experienced a mayfly swarm.  I think I'm pretty happy about that. Apparently the mayflies were so thick they...
