Riding Bikes, Picking Fruit – Fruit Peddlars Project links another Community Food Security possibility

Again from the Sustainable Melbourne website

{ http://www.sustainablemelbourne.com/ }

a presentation on the Fruit Peddlars Project, an idea pleasantly described as people riding bikes in Moreland picking fruit from trees in people’s yards and along the street, and sharing the fruit with the community by distributing it to local neighbourhood houses. Michael Chew conducted a feasibility research project into this great local concept on behalf of Environment Victoria.

  1. What a great idea. I have always loved the idea of growing fruit to be distributed to people that are in need of fresh fruit. But to have a delivery system in place…that is completing the circle.
