In browsing through the internet today, I came across this website about a local non-profit organization focusing efforts on sharing the bounty from fruit trees within the city to those who are in need. This goal is realized through numerous volunteers, fruit tree registry of participants and supporters.

The Portland Fruit Tree Project has a simple purpose yielding enormous results Рover 4,600 pounds of food was harvested in 2008 that would have gone to waste otherwise.

Makes me think about the 2 apple trees, one pear tree and one (yummy) plum tree in my backyard. Every year we are begging friends and family to take a share of the harvest. I mean, how much more creative can one family get with canning, freezing and recipe-ing (is that a word?).

This group takes you from the fruit tree selection process to planting advice through proper pruning techniques and right around to harvesting the fruits of your labor.

Check them out.
