Portland Fruit Tree Project increases equitable access to healthful food and strengthens communities by empowering neighbors to share in the harvest and care of city-grown produce.
Bottom Line for Portland
This city is full of fruit trees and most trees produce more than the homeowners can use. Our city is also full of people without access to fresh fruit, often due to finances, but also due to living further out of the city where there are fewer grocery stores and markets. PFTP provides an elegant solution to those problems through harvests and education.
Bauman's will host a Virtual Happy Hour Tasting Tour of their seasonal flavors. They will donate proceeds of sales to PFTP.
"I find that the best way to deal with challenging times in our world is to give of one’s time - contribute to making someone else’s life a little easier. I love knowing that my two hours of service means that someone who might not otherwise gets fresh fruit."- PFTP Volunteer
