2021 Charity :
Young non-profit organization from La Rochelle, created in 2020, July.
Each year a lot of fruits rot at their tree’s feet because they couldn’t be picked up. At a time when most of our food covers hundreds of kilometers to arrive in our plates, « Aux arbres citoyens » organize fruit picking at citizens’s gardens from La Rochelle and nearby, in order to increase the value of theses resources.
After each picking, fruits are shared between picker volunteers, tree’s owner and local charities who distribute it or transform it before distribution. In that way, the organization fight against fruits wasting, and enable fragile population to have access to fresh products.
Pickings take place at La Rochelle and all towns nearby, and also in the South of Ré Island. If you want to suggest a picking at your place or if you want to become volunteer :
