A nonprofit volunteer organization in Northern California whose mission is to provide food for the hungry, preserve our heritage and skills, and promote sustainable use of urban resources. We organize and coordinate backyard fruit harvesting, and provide education on fruit tree care, harvesting, and food preservation.

While Harvesting is our largest activity, a fruit tree is a resource for the community as well as the owner. We provide educational materials and advice on fruit tree care and harvesting, and on food preservation such as making jams and preserves from home-grown fruit. We also work with local public and private orchard owners.
