Since 1999, the Vancouver Fruit Tree Project has harvested and shared over 25,000 pounds of fruit. Come celebrate the start of a new season of fruit sharing in the city! There will be lots of fine, fruit-lovin' folks to chat with, and we can all cut a rug to the toe-tappin' tunes provided by Harold Donnelly and his band of fine friends. Harold plays lovely folk tunes, and also has a beard so robust you can hide apples in it, which is an awesome party trick. There will also be goodies and a bar! All ages. Plus there will be prizes to be won! $3-5 sliding scale at the door.

What we do: we harvest and distribute fruit and nuts that might otherwise go to waste. When a homeowner calls with an apple tree whose full bounty is too much for their family and friends to use, we organize a group of our local volunteers who pick the fruit, clean up the tree fallings, and then hand the fruit over to one of our community partners, including daycare centers, community kitchens, and homes for seniors.
