Fruit trees will now be available in public places in Copenhagen, Denmark. With the aim of reconnecting people and local flora, the council of the said city voted to plant communal fruit trees that include blueberry bushes and apple trees. These fruit trees will be planted in various green spaces like playgrounds, sports facilities, churchyards, cemeteries, and parks.
It is also possible to harvest fruits from private spaces provided that the land has footpaths and for as long as fruit pickers remain on the trail. For visitors who are not familiar with the availability of resources, the mobile app Vild Mad provides fruit tree locations and educates users on foraging.
Vild Mad guides visitors about the country’s tourist destinations such as beaches and forests, and also includes tips and recipes for available local ingredients.
