Weekend inspiration: Falling Fruit
The rain has stopped and the sun is shining. So take some weekend inspiration from Falling Fruit. This global collaborative project encourages local foragers to post the location of fruit trees in public spaces and gardens. The idea to create like-minded communities of foragers committed to reducing food waste and gleaning the abundance of the city's own urban harvest. The site lists local foraging maps like those created by Hackney Harvest and Abundance London as well as not-for-profit agencies that collect glut fruit and vegetables from private gardens and donate it to food banks. Falling Fruit is an open-source website meaning that anyone can post data. All entries include information on season, access, quality, yield, fruiting status, and location. Press on the changes tab to monitor new listings. Over half a million sites are listed globally with 379 to explore in London alone. Happy harvesting!
