Oranges in Cadiz

Earlier this year, I wrote about stealth gardening in Seoul, where people just took whatever land was unclaimed and grew vegetables- even in the center of satellite cities.

In Cadiz (Spain), we happened upon a more organized form of corporate gardening- streets lined with orange trees. It made me think again of Seoul, and what might be possible (and may already be happening) in Cape Town. Heavy traffic aside, the possibility of low maintenance fruiting trees and shrubs is really intriguing.
The oranges are moldy because winter is arriving- I think earlier in the year they were awesome.
