Fruit Trees Feeding the Homeless


Fruit trees  along sidewalks can feed the homeless. One apple or peach tree can yield 300 pounds of food. One plum tree can yield 100 pounds of food. If fruit trees lined the street, imagine how much food could be produced. 

Planting urban trees along the street in our cities, can provide not only a visual and beautiful background to a barren street,  it gives the homeless and hungry the ability to access food that is healthy and fresh when it may be needed most.

Several cities around the world are trying this idea.
