PHASE 1: We've planted tons of fruit trees in the neighborhood surrounding Los Angeles State Historic Park in Downtown LA! In the weeks leading up to this Phase of The Endless Orchard, we went door to door in the community to meet with residents, businesses, schools and churches and we found stewards for the new public fruit trees. These same neighbors came to help us plant the trees in front of their properties along sidewalks and agreed to take care of the trees and share fruit with the everyone.
Join us for The Endless Orchard PHASE 2! We'll be planting more trees, creating our Monument to Sharing, and launching our mobile app where anyone can plant, map and share their fruit!

Becoming part of The Endless Orchard is easy: 1. You have space along sidewalks and fences on private property – a home, local business or apartment building. 2. The space is sunny and is already being watered or can be watered regularly. 3. You agree to share the fruit tree with neighbors and passersby and be part of The Endless Orchard where Trees are mapped and shared with the community. 4. Join us March 19th at 10 am at Los Angeles State Historic Park. We will give you a fruit tree. (Apricots, Apples, Figs, Grapes, Pomegranates and Plums.) We will have volunteers to help plant if needed. It takes a community to grow an Endless Orchard – and you can help bring this sustainable, collaborative public art work to fruition. email > INFO@FALLENFRUIT.ORG and get involved! It’s free to participate – sign up for a fruit tree at no cost and/or volunteer and help us plant trees on the margins of public space. The Endless Orchard is an on-going installation of fruit trees on or in the margins of public space and designed to provide communities with an urban experience that can be cared for, cultivated and shared by the public. ‘Urban Fruit Trails’ have already been planted in Los Angeles, Riverside, Omaha and Portland. The goal is to connect neighborhoods and create walking trails from public transportation to local destinations. The fruit trees are planted on the margins of public space, along sidewalks and parkways where the fruit can be shared with everyone. The trailhead will be at the orange grove in Los Angeles State Historic Park and fruit trees will lead out into the surrounding neighborhoods. The Endless Orchard App will launch in June 2016 - anyone, anywhere can participate and share fruit!
