Public Fruit Jam

Fallen Fruit invites the public to bring home-grown or street picked fruit and collaborate together in making new and experimental fruit jams.  Working without recipes, participants are asked to sit with people they don't already know and negotiate what kind of jam to make: if I have lemons and you have figs, we’ll make lemon fig jam (with lavender). This event highlights the participatory and public nature of Fallen Fruit’s work, and they consider it a collaboration with the public as well as each other.

Fruit Tree Adoptions - LACMA

EATLACMA kicked off with public fruit tree adoptions that were held at LACMA’s campus and Watts Towers Arts Center and Charles Mingus Youth Arts Center. Fallen Fruit distributed 150 trees at each site with planting instructions, requesting that the fruit trees are planted in public space or on the perimeter of private property. The fruit tree adoptions were chosen to introduce the project to honor the beginning of the growth cycle, while also signaling the project’s commitment to transforming neighborhoods and building community.
