The New Orleans Fruit Tree Project operates through the generosity of tree owners who donate their bounty for harvesting.
You can register your tree anytime of the year regardless if it is bearing fruit or not. NOFTP is familiar with numerous harvesting techniques and has worked in a variety of environments, from orchards to cramped side lots. We supply all of our own equipment and all volunteers sign liability waivers prior to every harvest.
After we receive your completed registration form, we add your tree(s) to our database. We will then ask you to notify us 2 weeks before you expect the fruit will be ready for harvest. We will then arrange a site visit to look at the tree(s), and discuss potential harvesting dates.
Fruit tree owners are welcome to a portion of their harvest or can choose to donate it all.
Just fill out the form and click Send and we’ll be in touch!
