Growing Hope Gardens – Don’t Let That Fruit Go to Waste! 

Please reach out to Growing Hope Gardens if you have a fruit tree that needs to be picked. They  will come by, at no charge, and harvest as much fruit as possible, without using ladders, and donate the fruit to a food bank.

As of March 4, 2022, in the previous 2 weeks, volunteers had picked just over 2000 pounds of fruit from Topanga residential fruit trees. Growing Hope Gardens then distributed the excess fruit to local food banks and food justice nonprofits.

Email to donate your fruit, or to ask about upcoming volunteer opportunities.
