September ’15 update
Harvest season is in full swing! Over 600 pounds of fruit has been harvested so far from the Friendly Area Neighborhood, thanks to volunteer efforts. The amount of fruit seems to be less than previous years, which might be related to the hot weather in spring when fruit was setting, and a hot summer. But the project has grown nicely in other ways, both in terms of volunteers and fruit “stewards” who have offered to share their fruit.
If you know of fruit that is not being used, either yours or a neighbor’s, let’s try to get it harvested before the season ends. Go ahead and knock on a door & meet a neighbor! You can direct folks to friendlyfruittreeproject.org to register fruit online, or complete a printed form (print it here), or leave a note (print from here).
