Gather It! Organize an Urban Harvest – 1.7 MB

 

People all over the world are organizing projects in which excess fruit from backyard trees is harvested and shared with others. In the words of one organizer, fruit sharing is “the most common sense type of community development.” This handbook is a response to the question: How do we start a fruit harvest in our own neighborhood? It is based on Solid Ground’s Community Fruit Tree Harvest project in Seattle, Washington, started in 2005.
