Campus Harvest

This project involves University of Arizona students harvesting edible fruits, nuts and seed pods from trees in the campus arboretum. The goal is to promote the many benefits of trees and show the UA community how the urban landscape can contribute to food security and sustainability. The organizers will encourage interested UA students and members of the Tucson community to come out and help with harvests. Plans also call for a series of publications documenting best practices—so next season you can do it yourself.
