Fruit Rescue

Boulder, Colorado, USA

Inspiring residents to harvest, share and celebrate the bounty of our urban forest.

About Us

Community Fruit Rescue is a coalition dedicated to harvesting and distributing the surplus urban fruit growing throughout Boulder, Colorado.

We envision a resilient, just and collaborative community where everyone has access to healthy and local food, humans and wildlife coexist, and waste is minimized.

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 hold neighborhood harvests throughout the growing season. Please register to join and be notified of upcoming harvests!
