Portland Fruit Tree Project

Portland is essentially a huge urban orchard. There are fruit trees everywhere! And these trees are beautiful to look at, sure, but they also require a lot of work. In fact, they can make a pretty big mess when no one takes care of them. Plus, what a waste of delicious produce! Find out how one fast growing, non-profit organization is turning Portland’s abundant fruit supply into a valuable community resource.
