Fallen fruit in the city

Fallen Fruit is project about mapping of all the “public fruit” planted on private property that overhangs public space. This grassroots community activism project encourages people to harvest, plant and share public fruit in response to accelerating urbanization.


The mission of Fallen Fruit is to expand our community fruit maps, photos and essays to create an online global public fruit resource. The project asks all of us to petition cities and towns to support community gardens and only plant fruit-bearing trees in public parks.

Let our streets be lined with apples and pears! Demand that all parking lots be landscaped with fruit trees which provide shade, clean the air and feed the people.
