Hamilton Fruit Tree Project

The Hamilton Fruit Tree Project organizes groups of volunteers to pick backyard fruit trees that would otherwise go to waste. The harvest is then shared with tree owners, volunteers and social service agencies. This year promises to be an exciting year thanks to the Hamilton Community Foundation and Healthy Living Hamilton for providing funding that supports a part-time coordinator, several food skills workshops, picking equipment and promotional materials. We are always looking for new fruit trees to pick and more volunteers to pick them. This season the project will focus on fruit storage and preserving techniques so stay tuned for workshop details in your area. If you would like to get involved as a tree owner or as a volunteer, please contact
