Manchester to become a giant allotment

200x190.jpgA UK city is to plant thousands of fruit trees and vegetable patches to help residents during the recession.

Council bosses hope the move - where fruit and veg will be planted in all of Manchester's 135 public parks - will get people eating healthily.

Vegetable patches, beehives and fruit trees will all be setup as part of the £200,000 scheme with members of the public told to help themselves.

A spokesperson for the council said the plan would put a fruit or vegetable patch within walking distance of every Mancunian and was introduced because some children did not know where their food comes from.

Sure they do, it's the supermarket isn't it?
