- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
i just heard someone say they would love it if their neighbors picked peaches from their tree... and just wanted to contribute a wonderful group to the discussion....
this group provides a database to match up people who have fruit trees (or other perenial food) they'd like to share with others, and those who can make use of the food. you can post the location of your fruit tree, or search for fruit trees in your neighborhood.
i can a lot of fruit that i have gleaned from the neighborhood- i make a lot of grape juice from grapes i find in alleys, and will put almost anything i find in abundance into a jar!and i have also posted my own pear tree on the site. it's a wondeful resource! folks who have too much fruit get to avoid the sticky mess it creates and see that it doesn't go to waste! and those who can use the fruit get access to a bounty that would otherwise go to waste.
we are so lucky to have such a conducive climate for growing here in portland- i hope everyone will plant fruit bearing plants and share the bounty!
