Hello, summer! Let’s get picking.


Now that summer’s made up its mind to stick around, it’s time to start thinking about fruit! The first pick of the season will take place this Friday, July 13, at 6:00 p.m.

The location has yet to be determined, but if you’re interested in volunteering to pick this week (or if you’d like to participate in future picks), email Julia at [email protected] for more information.

If you have or know of a fruit tree that’s dropping fruit, visit our website for information about how you can have the Vancouver Fruit Tree Project collect and distribute the fruit to our community partners.
