Feral Fruit Trees

Feral Fruit Trees Melbourne promotes promotes localized food gathering in cities where food is being obtained from increasingly distant sources. Fruit trees growing in or overhanging public spaces  are accessible to the urban hunter-gatherer.  Fruit lying outside the boundary of private property for instance on a branch hanging over a fence is considered to be public property and therefore anyone can legally take the fruit. Harvesting of these trees transforms our current food distribution system into a more sustainable alternative and promotes a consciousness of the ecology within our urban environments. Urban hunter-gatherers can also enjoy the benefit of fresh fruit that is often organic and not to mention free.
