Tides Canada project Not Far From The Tree, is Toronto’s very own fruit tree project, inspiring Torontonians to harvest, share, celebrate, and steward the bounty from our urban forest as a way to connect more intimately with a sound environmental way of life.
This year, thanks to partnerships with five local processors, Not Far From the Tree is offering Torontonians a new way to experience the city’s local fruit – Community Backed Preserves.
Exclusively made from fruit picked by Not Far From the Tree volunteers, the aptly named “Fruitful” line of artisanally-produced preserves is available for a limited time. Fruitful preserves will be sold in packs, each pack features unique handcrafted preserves from all five local processors:
When you purchase a Fruitful preserves pack, not only are you getting delicious locally-sourced and locally-produced preserves, you’re supporting healthy food and a healthy environment for Toronto. All proceeds from the sale of the Fruitful packs will go to support Not Far From the Tree’s fruit picking and sharing program.
