public fruit

I'm in L.A., home of Fallen Fruit! As someone who stole pomegranates from a neighbor's yard as a kid, and who (yearly) picks roadside mulberries by the million, the concept of harvesting public fruit, veggies and nuts is exciting. The maps created for this purpose are beautiful in and of themselves. Learn more about projects Fallen Fruit, Urban Rangers, Farmlab, and Edible Estates here.
