Preserving the fruits of Toronto’s urban bounty

NFFTT Pickers

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.

NFFTT FruitfulExclusively 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.
