Retrofitting Motorway Junctions – Useful plants and fungi for – food – cosmetics – fibres – gums – medicine – building materials

Perhaps we can link the motorway junctions & service stations with these spaces that act as new ecological spaces to raise and propogate the plants needed in the landcapes surrounding the old motorway network.

The idea started with Alissa Walker’s – A modest proposal – ban cars – http://www.treehugger.com/cars/modest-proposal-ban-cars.html & promted the idea of building Nutrastructure not ‘infrastructure’ http://www.transitionlinks.org/?p=9165

Using Kew gardens and Farmers knowledges – copy and paste food forests and grow the things we need.

Thanks

Rewild the uplands to try and stop the flooding – work at a bioregional scale but copy and paste similar as the new backbone in UK.

PollyTunnels on the rest of the motorways & Vaccume tube transports bulk crops or existing train system overnight?

Saves alot of conflict in over oil and achieves the same result.
