There has been recent discussion with growing concern about growing
edibles in the area between the street and the sidewalk in my community.

I can't imagine why anyone would do this -- if you want to make the area look better, there are lots of plants that are quite tough that you could decorate the space with instead. The risk of contamination is just too great to place edibles in such a place.

Beware of placing plants that are too tall in such an area -- folks do have what they consider a reasonable expectation of being able to cross the street or get out of their cars and if the plants are in the way, the plants will bear the brunt of such poor design.
