Rule number 3 seems first & foremost. But, all are good advise.

we used to go to way out in the country then make maps for tourists in the area to find the best berry picking areas in Nothern Alberta!

Unfortunately I don't see many of that opportunity in my neighborhood. And I walk around my neighborhood a lot.

Love this article. I grew up picking fruit from the most unusual places. Public parks are particularly good1

In many cities 'gleaning' clubs have been started to do urban harvesting just as described above. Google 'gleaning' and your city's name to see if there's one in your town!

Great advice! I used to live in HI and souther CA, and there was so much wasted fruit rotting on the ground. So sad to see it go to waste. I'd kill to have those mango, avocado and citrus trees in my yard!

Great ideas. Here in Las Vegas, we have an abundance of mesquite trees whose seed pods are quite edible and make a wonderful flour when ground and whose seeds make a delicious chili. Last week I harvested about 15 gallons of seed pods in about 20 minutes. I have never met another person taking advantage of this free resource. Their loss!

Great quick article. Would like to see more food banks get involved or assoc with urban farming.

great article and tips. I would add to try to forage for some Mulburries- a great treat if the birds don't get there first. Other ' wild edible fruits' and nuts in the northeast include hichory, blueberries and service berries.

This concept is great. It almost makes you feel like Ewell Gibbons. We have encouraged people to plant fruit trees rather than shade trees. We have also organized several mesquite pod recovery drives. This year we gathered nearly 700 pounds.

What an inspiration article. I used to forage the old railroad tracks for elder berries many years ago. I might just resurrect that experience again this year.

the location we are in, we forge for fruit on the roadways, we have large areas of blackberries and sand plums that grow wild, the only draw back is the chiggers and snakes, whe and if you get the chance, wear long sleves and jeans and boots and gloves are a must, have fun

Great idea. Especially to keep the stem. Always lasts longer.
