Fallen Fruit is a collective activist art project which advocates for the expansion and exploration of public fruit, which we define is all fruit growing on or over public property. The web site is devoted in particular to the mapping project which formed the original impetus of our collaboration: a mapping of all the fruit growing on or over public property in our neighborhood in Los Angeles; the goal of Fallen Fruit is to map all of Los Angeles, then California, and finally the world. It has also generated an active forum of discussion on public fruit issues, from local harvesting to gleaning techniques to the ethics of foraging. All of our projects are presented here as well, including nightime fruit forages, our public fruit jams and two public fruit park proposals.
