Have you ever noticed how much fruit falls and rots on the ground? The Santa Cruz Fruit Tree Project is a grassroots organization that seeks to make use of the bounty. We organize community fruit harvests as well as processing events like pressing cider, curing olives, and making jam and wine. We’re also developing a community orchard in a City park, and do some pruning every year at sites that we’ve picked from.
Our goal is to explore our community and create connections – cultivating relationships within neighborhoods as we enjoy the abundance around us and help move Santa Cruz towards a sustainable future. Come join us – see the sidebar for a schedule of events.
