The Good Food Collective

The Good Food Collective aims to feed community members instead of bears. By listing your backyard apple tree for harvest or by heading out to gather those apricots from your neighbor’s yard, you are doing a huge favor to our community. For one, you are helping to strengthen our regional food security (i.e. our ability to feed ourselves) and keeping our bears wild and safe from harm.

Fruit Trees Available for Harvest:  Click icons on map for more information. (Map locations are approximate). Once you find a tree you are interested in harvesting, please use the contact information listed to get more detailed harvest information.

* Click on this link to list fruit trees for gleaning and to remove a tree from the list.

 “Thank you for the fruit gleaning program! I was able to contact two out of the three people listed and my family and I collected bags of pears and apples last week, hopefully helping the trees and property owners to keep damage down to a minimum, keeping bears from harm and helping us too. Thanks again.”  –  Durango resident, 2015

 

 

Thank you to The Payroll Department , the USDA and the Community Foundation serving Southwest Colorado!
