Add comment on:Citrus in Seabright with Santa Cruz Fruit Tree Project
On Saturday, March 23, 2013, the Santa Cruz Fruit Tree Project held a citrus harvest in the Seabright neighborhood. Inspired by similar projects across Canada and in the U.S., the Santa Cruz Fruit Tree Project seeks out residents willing to share their surplus fruit, as well as trees on public land or vacant lots. Since August 2010, they have organized approximately 50 harvests and workshops.
On this sunny afternoon, the group converged at Frederick Street Park and then split up from there to pick lemons and oranges. At the park, organizer Steve Schnaar explained that unlike previous events, all the harvested fruit would be placed into collective bins and then distributed at the end. Furthermore, the Fruit Tree Project also intends to start giving processed fruit gifts to all the residents who share their fruit.
