Planting for the Poor

This is important because it will put the unemployed back to work, while feeding the poor and homeless as it decreases the dependency of the impoverished on food stamps. This will in the long run save more money for the federal government than they initially put into doing it. It will pay for itself. I will ask that the federal government pay those who are currently unemployed to do this work. There are many open public spaces all over the nation where people are being paid to mow grass for the city, when they can be paid to produce food for those in need. This will ensure that no one has their property confiscated. I will also ask that the President create a "Federal Department of Parks and Recreation". Funds would be used by this department to pay for "Food Forests" to be planted in public parks and outdoor recreational areas. Please sign and repost. Thank you.
