This seems to be the world I live in you describe Dillon! The small-scale, demo site that allows for training and building of awareness, understanding and comfort as you put it, seems to be the way to go in changing the current status quo- my years of partnering with the Park Board here on community eco-art projects has taught me the value of the word "pilot"!

Most of these orchards are on quite a small scale. A broad implementation of 'boulevard orchards' throughout the city would produce far more food. But, they are an excellent starting point, good demonstration sites, valuable for training, useful for cultivar sources, hopefully serve useful community-building functions, and an excellent way for people to try something different and get comfortable with the concept....
