CULTIVATING COMMUNITY THROUGH HARVESTING LOCAL FOOD
Join us on our Fruit Tree Project Facebook Page, to find out what we are up to!
The Central Okanagan Fruit Tree Project has recently been started by a small group of volunteers with the Central Okanagan Food Policy Council.
Our goal is to turn backyard fruit trees into a valuable source of food for the community by harvesting otherwise wasted fruit.
The project will increase the availability of healthy fruit for those in need, reduce food waste, and promote local food security and volunteerism.
Home owners can sign-up to have the fruit picked by volunteers if they have more fruit than needed or are unable to pick.
Fruit will be distributed among fruit tree owners, volunteer fruit pickers, and local community organizations.
Volunteers are also needed to assist with picking and distribution of fruit.
Please register your fruit tree or sign-up as a volunteer with the Central Okanagan Fruit Tree Project. You can also email us at – cofruittreeproject (at) gmail.com
