Seattle, WA (June 7, 2010)- City-grown fruit is a resource for the entire community. Because most residential tree owners can’t—or don’t—use all the fruit produced on their properties, much of it falls to the ground and rots. In addition, much of the fruit grown in urban landscapes is infested with preventable pests.
City Fruit promotes the cultivation of urban fruit in order to nourish people, build community and protect the climate. We help tree owners grow healthy fruit, provide assistance in harvesting and preserving fruit, promote the sharing of extra fruit, and work to protect urban fruit trees.
City Fruit collaborates with others involved in local food production, climate protection, horticulture, food security and community building to protect and optimize urban fruit trees. The overarching goals of City Fruit include conservation, preservation of the urban tree canopy, stewardship, fruit harvesting, using and sharing fruit, and community building.
