Neighbors and Fruit Trees

Not exactly green building, but sustainable none the less…

As long time proponents of edible agriculture and local foods, we were delighted to find the article Neighbors and Fruit Trees by Jim Hightower. The the websites referenced, www.fallenfruit.org, www.forageoakland.blogspot.com, www.neighborhoodfruit.com, and www.veggietrader.com all look useful, though the latter two are probably the ones I’m most likely to use as they’re both free and not limited to a specific geographical area. Happy eating!
