The wonderful Ariel Gordon shares her Fruit Share experience.
Sometimes a pick is just a pick, sometimes it’s so much more. A recent pick brought me back to 2010 when Fruit Share was just taking shape.
Mrs. O is one of the original homeowners that called me to pick her Goodland apples in 2010. She was 80 and couldn’t pick or use all of her gorgeous apples. Given to her by her sons on Mother’s Day years ago, she was eager to see the apples from her special tree go to good use. Her story inspired part of my TEDX talk on Sharing Our Surplus.

Hello, I own a couple of properties and currently only have raspberries that I transplanted from my hometown farm. I planted them at the front fence for everybody walking by to help themselves.
They all love them so much but they spread so slowly and I was hoping to expand into a wide variety of non-GMO local fruits. I could plant them at edge of properties where people in need could help themselves.
