Harvesting Our Urban Generosity sharing the wealth of our homes and land

This last year my wife and I became avid juicers after watching a great movie called ‘Fat Sick and nearly Dead’.  I must admit this past fall I was very much aware of so many lovely fruit trees lying wasted in backyards of Real Estate  for sale I was showing and empty Commercial Building  lots . I was able to harvest months of free delicious unused apples from a 39 acre retreat listing I have in Willamina. http://www.tourfactory.com/795656

I  recently discovered  in the Richmond neighborhood newsletter, a wonderful  story about  the Portland Fruit Tree project , a grass-roots non-profit organization harvesting  and teaching care of Urban fruits trees providing fresh fruit to folks who don’t always have full access to fresh alive  foods.

PFTP organizes neighborhood volunteer efforts to harvest found in The Sabin Community Orchards, neighbors with unused fruit growing in their trees in Abernathy- Hosford Abernathy, Richmond,  Buckman, Sunnyside,

Laurelhurst , Tabor  and growing network of urban neighborhoods.

Portland Urban Harvest

PTFC’s harvest and food distribution partners include the Oregon Food Bank, Sisters of the Road Café and dozen location nonprofits and churches.

There are many ways to Volunteer -  attend a harvest event, encourage  registering trees for harvest or donate.  503-284-6106
