Portland Fruit Tree Project Branches Out

Portland is essentially a huge urban orchard: There are fruit trees everywhere.

And while these trees are beautiful to look at, 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, nonprofit organization is turning Portland’s abundant fruit supply into a valuable community resource.
