“Dear PoPville,

I sent this to Mayor Bowser. It is my hope that DC can offer a program such as the one described in the below article. I think it would be cool for High School Seniors to have an opportunity to earn their community service credit and do something human for the needy.”

People Will Soon Be Able To Forage For Free Food In This Floating Forest:

“New Yorkers will soon be able to pick apples, arugula and rosemary — for free — from an edible forest planted on top of a barge. The vessel and project, named Swale, will glide along New York City’s waterways, docking at locations like Brooklyn Bridge Park and Governor’s Island starting early this summer.”
