Folks - I would appreciate any feedback and support about an ongoing project in 3 counties in western and central Massachusetts. This is a non-profit called Help Yourself, which plants fruit and nut trees, shrubs, vines, herbs and veggie gardens in a variety of public settings, free for all to harvest from.

We've planted at about 70 locations, mainly K-12 public schools, businesses, organizations, institutions, bike paths, etc. Check it out at www.helpyourselfedibles.org

We're currently doing an Indiegogo fundraiser to plant 2,000 fruit trees this spring!

It would be great to bounce ideas off of folks who have tried something similar in their communities so we can hone our techniques!

Thoughts?

Oh, sure, you could do that. Or you could eat some pie. While reading this tiny ad:
