Fruitful Cambridge

One of the things I'm looking forwards to about our forthcoming summer cruise (we leave in under two weeks!) is looking out for wild growing fruit - the sheer quantities that Helen from I know a bank where the wild thyme grows has found is quite amazing!

Nearly ripe!
But in the meantime I'm keeping an eye out in Cambridge. Helpfully, Transition Cambridge has created a Fruit Map of the city using Google Maps with all the fruit trees in public spaces marked out. What a good idea! Wouldn't it be wonderful to begin to create something similar for the waterways?

EDIT: Just found there is one in London too! And one for the US that has an iPhone App.

  1. Oh what a fantastic idea, Amy! I'm already begining to compile a sort of mental map, I should write it down. Andy's just told me there's a map widget that I could stick on my blog and add to it as I find things. I shall investigate. How exciting! We're off to Huddersfield in three weeks so I'll start by charting that trip :) Meanwhile, have a look at the links on this site - they've got some useful things: http://abundancebirmingham.wordpress.com/

  2. Excellent idea Amy! Thanks for including the links.
