Public Fruit Tree Adoption in Pasadena- December 18th
December 18th in Old Pasadena at One Colorado
We’re giving away the gift that keeps on giving – a citrus tree compliments of Fallen Fruit and One Colorado! The artist collaborative Fallen Fruit (David Burns & Austin Young) invites the public to adopt a citrus tree and plant it in a public space or alongside private property to create new kinds of community based on generosity and sharing. It makes you feel good, it’s good for the planet, it’s free and it saves Santa a trip.
Each participant is asked to sign an adoption form promising to care for the tree—initiating a relationship with it. We ask recipients to plant them in public space or along the borders of private property near sidewalks where the fruits will be shared and enjoyed by the community. There will be over 50 citrus trees carefully selected for event. One tree per family. Fruit trees should be planted immediately with the understanding that they require extra water and care for three years. Fallen Fruit will provide planting instructions and caretaking tips.
RSVP to info @ fallenfruit.org by 12/17. Trees are first-come, first-served; RSVPs are given priority 6p – 7p; open to the public 7p – 8p.
