Dig in to Portland Fruit Tree Project!

Hi PFTP supporters! All kinds of trees are loaded with fruit and our community orchards have had some great work parties! And we have welcomed new board members. We are so excited for what’s ahead. Check out some of our resources and ways to get involved below.

DIY Harvest Team

If you’re a passionate fruit picker or a fruit tree owner, here are two ways to get involved with this new PFTP team:

  1. If you haven’t already, join our Share the Harvest Facebook page where people who have fruit and people who want fruit can connect. If you have a Facebook account you can log in and request to join the group.
  2. Sign up for the DIY Harvest Team email list. We’ll update you on opportunities to get involved with DIY harvesting activities this harvest season.
Community Orchards Team

Our five Community Orchard partners need help completing seasonal orchard care, putting on workshops, doing neighborhood outreach, and more.

Sign up for updates about how to get involved in Parkrose, Sabin, Green Thumb, Fruits of Diversity, and Gabriel Community Orchards!

Check out some of our resources!

We have created the following informational resources for fruit tree owners with tips on ripening, harvesting, and year-round organic tree care – specific to fruit trees, nut trees, and fruiting vines that are commonly grown in Portland.

About the Organization

Portland Fruit Tree Project’s mission is to increase equitable access to healthful food and strengthen communities by empowering neighbors to share in the harvest and care of city-grown produce. Portland Fruit Tree Project (PFTP) is an award-winning nonprofit organization that provides a community-based solution to a critical and growing need: Access to healthful food. Through our four unique programs, PFTP provides direct services that improve quality of life for people in Portland. Since its inception, PFTP has significantly expanded the number of harvesting events, amount of fruit harvested, and number of people served each year.

About the Volunteer Opportunities Newsletter

The Volunteer Opportunities Newsletter allows students, faculty, and staff at PCC a more comprehensive look at volunteer needs and opportunities from our community partners. Our hope is that the newsletter will allow subscribers to stay better informed about community service opportunities in the tri-county areas of Portland, Oregon, as well as non-profit internships and scholarships available locally and nationally.
