Since 2004 we have been mapping the edible plant organisms that live within public realms of Bristol City UK. Plants that are rooted in private domains yet branch into public space are included in this survey. Potential planting sites are also investigated, with the aim to increase the life spectrum of the city. The map is not like an A to Z; it doesn't have road names. The map can be navigated by following the contours of the roads, the defining shapes of the city, the plant locations as points of reference. Questions that are often asked: Will a map of this kind induce an over harvest and depletion of free foods? Or Will a greater awareness of the potential and value of these plants encourage a greater desire, support and encouragement for wild/domestic/feral edible plants to enter and exist within the public urban domain?
