Champs Elysée in Paris

Would over 800,000 Vancouverites spend a Sunday on a holiday weekend looking at vegetables and plants? Probably not...but in Paris they did on May 23, at Nature Capitale

Normally, this blog focuses on edibles in front yards and lanes, but with this entry I'm taking the liberty of extending the scope to include vegetables literally ON the street. Champs Elysee was covered with wheat and other edible plants, such as corn, lettuce, beets, garlic, peas, chard, and rape seed.

And to top it all off--an edible pyramid of raw veggies in sustainable wooden cases!

Very cool! That's the way I would like to spend my weekend!

I love the combination of colour and shapes of the pyramid.
