Who We Are & What We Do

The Vancouver Fruit Tree Project is a non-profit society. Our volunteers harvest extra fruit from backyard fruit trees and redistribute it to community groups. In the past 14 years we have picked more than 48,000 pounds (that’s over 24 tons!) of fruit and redistributed it to community centres, neighbourhood houses, daycares and other community groups. There are many available volunteer opportunities! Please feel free to contact us, and donations are welcome.
