Here is Emma Brown’s article in the Chronicle about Forage Oakland.
Saturday found Jenn and me at the corner of 51st and Broadway in Rockridge. I’ve watched this grapefruit tree since I moved to the neighborhood four years ago, but I hadn’t tried any of the fruit. Just as we arrived, an occupant of the building was leaving, and I double checked with him that it was okay to harvest the fruit. We harvested dozens of grapefruit, immediately giving many away to passers by and then schlepping the rest of them home. There is something to be said of the instant gratification that comes with immediately redistributing the fruit, rather than first taking it home to be sorted and such (which is what I usually do). Everyone we offered grapefruit to accepted, with some of them taking three or four fruits to enjoy later.
Carla, I’ve found your grapefruit and expect a delivery in the coming days!
And here is another photo of the full bucket of fruit.
