A Studio in the Woods/Endless Orchard

Tue, 2017-01-17 15:53 -- Don Ball

In partnership with the Lower Ninth Ward Center for Sustainable Engagement and Development, art collaboration Fallen Fruit will work with individuals and community groups to plant fruit trees in public spaces and in front of homes and businesses. Part of a large-scale, public artwork to transform cities across the country, in New Orleans, Fallen Fruit will create Urban Fruit Trails, localized networks of fruit trees that will continue to provide a needed resource, food, to the public in perpetuity. The artists will create accessible, online maps of these Urban Fruit Trails to serve as a resource for the public to explore the city, connect with neighbors, and feed themselves.
