Our earliest ancestors hunted and gathered. And now, gathering is back in style in the form of food foraging. If you enjoy foraging for food, check out Falling Fruit, an interactive, crowd-sourced map of pickable produce in public spaces.
Remember the Boston Tree Party? They’re the group of urban gardeners in Boston who are planting apple trees on publicly available land. They’ve already planted enough trees to produce more than 10,000 apples a year for the community, once the trees start fruiting.
As if that weren’t cool enough, there’s a new documentary film about the group, and they’re going to be screening it this coming Tuesday at Boston University! Check out a trailer and deets on the screening below.
Nope, that’s not a typo. The Boston Tree Party is a gang of modern-day Johnny Appleseeds in the Boston area who are planting heirloom apple trees on public land in Boston.
Fruit trees everywhere! Wouldn’t that be nice. Well, a bunch of people and organizations are working to make that happen. They’ve formed the Boston Tree Party, a little more productive than the modern-day Tea Party nightmare we have in Congress.
