Permaculture in the hood

These guys and gals are creating a permaculture urban forest/garden smack dab in the middle of our neighborhood.  We already have an urban food forest just behind this new garden.  The food forest lines a highway and serves not only to employ our youth ( gathering fruit, nuts) but also serves to feed the community and offers a buffer zone between the highway and our neighborhood that is both beautiful and works to decrease the sound from the highway
