Ski Nuts

The small mountain-town community of Basalt, just a few minutes from Aspen, is planning an edible community forest. City planners hope to recreate a forest ecosystem full of fruit and nut trees, mushrooms, native edibles, and a seed-saving garden. Modeled after other food forests around the country that allow people to forage for food for free, Basalt officials hope to have approval soon. [Aspen Daily News]
