About Us

Our mission is to inspire Boulder residents to harvest, share, and celebrate the bounty of our urban forest.

Millions of pounds of fruit grows nearly effortlessly in cities throughout the world. In Boulder, apples, pears, peaches, and plums fall in piles on the ground, creating a mess for homeowners and a dangerous attraction for bears.

That’s why we organize neighborhood harvests, where public and private trees bearing large amounts of fruit are harvested by neighbors and friends and their children in the course of a fun afternoon, providing fruit to all participants and plenty of extra to share with food banks, shelters, and soup kitchens.


We are currently delivering fruit to the following agencies. Due to the high demand for our services, we encourage people to pick and donate their fruit themselves.
