Urban Harvest

Quite often towns and cities will plant fruit trees as part of a beautification process and then when the fruit is ripe and ready for picking, nothing is done with the fruit. Usually it falls to the ground and decomposes.
Now there is a world-wide map that shows where this fruit might be found. The website is still a work in progress but it does contain quite a bit of information.

We have one of those programs here in Edmonton too so that fruit will not go to waste. I believe that on this program, 1/3 of the fruit goes to the owner, 1/3 to the picker(s) and 1/3 to the food bank. Not that we have a lot of fruit grown here but apples, crabapples and maybe some berry bushes are common enough.

We have fig trees in our Downtown area and when they're ripe and we're down there, I pick them and stuff them in my purse! No one's every stopped me. :)
