The Vancouver Fruit Tree Project is a non-profit society. Our volunteers harvest extra fruit from backyard fruit trees and share it with community groups. In the past 16 years, we have picked almost 60,000 pounds of fruit and redistributed it to community centres, neighbourhood houses, daycares and other community initiatives. Volunteers make these food recovery and community building efforts possible; learn more about the opportunities to get involved here. Please feel free to contact us with other questions and/or support our work through a donation.
