Some of the volunteers who helped create the edible bus route

Copenhagen is planting apple trees, blackberry bushes and more in public spaces like playgrounds, parks and churchyards.

The idea is a return to traditional fruit growing and harvesting, but updated for those who live in cities and don't have access to gardens.

Similar schemes are underway in Ottawa in Canada and Adelaide in Australia, where they are growing fruit in public spaces to supply food banks.

In London, there is the edible bus route - the 322 from Clapham Common to Crystal Palace, numerous public orchards and community food growing schemes.

Could your community be producing free public food in parks and public spaces too?
