Fallen Fruit in the Neighborhood

Fallen Fruit Web Site ScreenshotIn the past I have written about FallenFruit.org, a web site that seeks to map the publically accessible fruit trees around Los Angeles neighborhoods.

Today I received an email from David Burns, one of Fallen Fruit's organizers about mapping my own Van Nuys neighborhood. I think this is great time to make this project happen, so I am looking for some assistance. If you are in the LA area, I could use help in identifying the various trees. I know my orange from my grapefruit from my lemon, but figs and olives and loquats are beyond my ken. I could also just use some company and extra sets of eyes to make sure we catch every tree.

If you are outside the area, I can post pictures here that might allow you to identify the trees for me.

I have a handheld GPS which will allow me to easily mark and map the trees once I have collected all the data from the walk.

If you are interested in helping out with this project, or perhaps mapping your own neighborhood, wherever you might be, let me know using the comments link below or emailing agn@welchwrite.com.
