Endless Orchard

Fallen Fruit

Fallen Fruit’s Endless Orchard is a non-contiguous map of fruit trees in public space. The orchard exists both in real world and real time. It exists simultaneously at the margins of public and private space, and the boundaries of social media and public participation. A monument to sharing will be anchored by an orchard of orange trees installed at the California State Historic Park and planting of public fruit trees will expand from this location organized by local community groups, schools and the general public. All the public fruit trees in the Endless Orchard will be marked online in a mapping systems similar to Google Maps. This open-source data will integrate with already existing databases into the largest single source map of public fruit trees in the world. The Endless Orchard map will also integrate social media using the fruit trees as markers for public participation.
