Free Fruit Trees | Transit Miami

With talk of peak oil imminent, I thought it was well timed that the City of Miami is hosting a fruit tree giveaway to City residents tomorrow, Saturday June 12th. Considering the increased expense of shipping agricultural products across the world my bet is that we’ll need to rely on sources of food close to home, and how much closer can you get than a fruit tree in your own yard!
The Second Fruit Tree Giveaway is part of the City’s Green Miami Campaign.
The vision for the Green Miami Campaign is to restore and enhance the City of Miami’s tree canopy into a thriving urban forest that provides multiple aesthetic and environmental benefits. The long-term goal is to increase the City of Miami’s tree canopy to 30% by 2017.
