Community Fruit Trees

We are very excited to be launching the Community Fruit Tree Project by planting 100 community fruit trees in Orlando, Florida! You might be wondering, what exactly is a community fruit tree?

Well, it’s pretty simple. A community fruit tree is a publicly owned fruit tree that is easily accessible for anyone to pick from. A sign next to the tree invites people to enjoy the fruit as well as gives information about the tree such as when it flowers and fruits. Each tree can be found on an online map (coming soon) and fallingfruit.org as well. We will plant community fruit trees at locations such as residential front yards and businesses along the sidewalk, the medians between streets and sidewalk, public schools, public parks, and along bike trails. The idea is to put fruit right where people walk every day and make it as accessible as it can be.
