Because of all the problems with food shortages, high energy prices, and horrible inflation, many of us will find it hard to get enough fresh produce. Please, can Provo City start an "edible landscape" initiative for our yards, patios, and (using hydroponics and aquaponics) even driveway and indoor areas of our dwellings? There is so much out there about it. I have several great instructional videos I can direct you to for plenty of ideas. I plan to do this with our yard, front and back. It is so much healthier and better for our lives to grow "edibles" (produce) in our landscapes than to have golf-course style lawns using toxic chemicals to kill weeds & insects, and to fertilize. If we could just switch to organic-style yard-based edible produce (maybe keep 1/3 grass or less), Provo would be more beautiful, interesting, and our families would be fed well! We can use lots of mulch to save water, as well. It would be great if Provo City would post how-to videos to our Provo citizens on ways they can do this with less work and better results. Thank you SO much in advance!
