Fruitful guardians of the city

Can fruit trees become a symbol of generosity, aesthetics and warmth?  That's a question that led a Los Angeles trio of artists and fruit tree enthusiasts to come together and form an art collective.  According to them, fruit offers an avenue for re-imagining the world in which we live.

Their collective is called, Fallen Fruit. As the following video illustrates, members of the group seek to engage the public at large in creating new arts-based projects rooted around fruit trees. Their work is inspiring and offers interesting opportunities to broaden the reach and ideas behind our Tree for the Picking initiative.  See for yourself:
