Fallen Fruit Takes New Life

The NYTimes reports on a new wave of urban gleaning--when community activists harvest the bounty of neighborhood fruit trees. Figs, citrus, apples & so much more that would otherwise go to waste is donated to food banks and helps spread community and local food knowledge.

This is one of the most inspiring actions going on in the local food movement--check out groups like Fallen Fruit or Amity Works for inspiration.
