Fallen Fruit is a California-based collective. From protests to proposals for new urban green spaces, they aim to reconfigure the relationship between those who have food resources and those who do not, examine the nature in and of cities, and investigate new, shared forms of land use and property. Fallen Fruit’s participatory projects have included Public Fruit Jams, in which they invite citizens to bring homegrown or public fruit and join in communal jam-making; Nocturnal Fruit Forages, nighttime neighborhood fruit tours; Public Fruit Tree Adoptions that invite the public to plant trees on the margins of private property. In Neighborhood Infusions, Fallen Fruit will explore the essence of place through a display of vodkas infused with fruit gathered in various neighborhoods in their hometown.  On September 26th, the collective will serve vodka to participants in this public event and invite them to share stories about their own Houston neighborhoods.
