The ENDLESS ORCHARD is a way that anyone anywhere can PLANT, MAP, AND SHARE FRUIT! Join us!
Anyone can plant, map, share, and navigate the fruit trees via our free online portal. Share your backyard fruit, map existing fruit trees in public spaces or plant new trees and ad them to Endlessorchard.com.
The Endless Orchard is a real living fruit orchard planted by the public, for the public – a movement of citizens transforming their own neighborhoods. Fruit is a transcultural symbol of sharing and The Endless Orchard is a living public artwork that anyone can eat from! Citizens plant fruit trees in front of their homes, community centers, schools, businesses, on the margins of public and private space and interstitial municipal spaces like parkways , bike paths and alleys. Signs placed at each tree identify it as part of a network of sharing.
The ENDLESS ORCHARD web app (endlessorchard.com) is free to use, designed and developed in partnership with Code Rodeo. Anyone, anywhere, can plant a fruit tree along their property’s publicly accessible margins and map it on the Endless Orchard. With each new participant, the orchard grows larger and is shared with more people. Participants can share their backyard fruit and map trees that exist in public space in their neighborhoods, or trees can be planted in collaboration with cities in public spaces and parks. These street-side plantings delineate trails that connect neighborhoods including urban food deserts to create access to fresh fruit.
