Portland Fruit Tree Project is a grass-roots non-profit organization that provides a community-based solution to a critical and growing need in Portland and beyond: Access to healthy food. By empowering neighbors to share in the harvest and care of urban fruit trees, we are preventing waste, building community knowledge and resources, and creating sustainable, cost-free ways to obtain healthy, locally-grown food. Because money doesn’t grow on trees… but fruit does!
"We organize people to gather fruit before it falls, and make it available to those who need it most. We register fruit and nut trees throughout the city, bring people together to harvest and distribute thousands of pounds of fresh fruit each year, and teach tree care and food preservation in hands-on workshops."

Our event last month was such a hit, we decided to do it again! Join PFTP staff, board members, volunteers and supporters in a casual night out in support of Portland Fruit Tree Project. We'll be there from 5 to 9pm. Come by for dinner or drinks, and 100% of the proceeds from your purchases will go to support PFTP's programs. Invite your friends! Bring your co-workers! Take the family! We would love to see you...
