The Endless Orchard events will include a public fruit tree adoption at the Feldheym Library, and a “plant the perimeter” event at the Garcia Center for the Arts. What if instead of going to the grocery store for an apple, you just walked outside your door? Fallen Fruit helps the community to create a real living fruit orchard planted by the public, for the public – a movement of citizens transforming their own neighborhoods. Neighbors adopt fruit trees and plant them next to the sidewalk to share with the community. Participants sign an adoption form, agreeing to care for and share the fruit tree. Trees are mapped on the San Bernardino Endless Orchard Map- where anyone can map, plant and share fruit. The anchor of this map will be 12 trees planted on the grounds of the Garcia Center for the Arts.
The first “Fallen Fruit San Bernardino!” events took place in partnership with the San Bernardino County Museum. The museum hosted an art exhibition “Life in the Cracks,” a zine workshop and “Orange You Glad I didn’t Say Banana?” in which participants drew their self-portrait on an orange in exchange for a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice. Future “Fallen Fruit San Bernardino!” events are being planned in Victorville and Crestline. Details will be announced as dates and times are confirmed.

Arts Connection, The Arts Council of San Bernardino County, was awarded a California Arts Council Artists Activating Communities grant to bring a project from artist collective, Fallen Fruit to life in San Bernardino. Additional funds for programming were awarded by the San Bernardino Fine Arts Commission and Southern California Gas Company.

The Endless Orchard is coming to San Bernardino!
Collaborate with us by adopting a fruit tree to share with neighbors!
You can apply to adopt a tree if:
• You have a home, business, or community center in San Bernardino. Preference will be given to our neighbors in the Inland Empire basin.
• The tree will be accessible to neighbors and passersby – placed in the front of your yard right next to the sidewalk.
• You agree to water and care for the tree for the first three years.
• You’re willing to share the bounty! Your tree will be part of the Endless Orchard map, which shares the locations of public fruit trees throughout the city.

Shown above is Fallen Fruit’s “Lemonade Stand.” Fallen Fruit San Bernardino, will feature a new iteration, “Orange You Glad You Didn’t Say Banana?”
ORANGE YOU GLAD I DIDN’T SAY BANANA
In exchange for drawing a self-portrait onto a hand-picked orange from the orchard on the property, each participant receives a glass of organic orange juice (also picked from the historic orchards). Collectively the orange self- portraits create a group portrait of everyone who joins us! Hand-drawn expressions illustrate joy and innocence as well as wisdom and age. During the project we will take portraits of participants along with their self-portraits and record stories about neighborhood and families of San Bernardino on the theme of … “Orange you glad…”
Fallen Fruit was originally conceived by David Burns, Matias Viegener and Austin Young. Since 2013, David and Austin have continued the collaborative work.
