Berries!

Kickoff mulberry and serviceberry personal pick this upcoming Monday, May 26 at 6pm in Freedom Park at the Freedom Park Trail and Moreland Ave. Look for us on the hill, we’ll have a CJ flag flying. (Approx address 605-637 Moreland Ave NE). At 6:15pm we will split off to go pick trees and pick for about an hour.

It’s berry season but the squirrels and other elements are getting to them too! We aren’t seeing quite enough volume for donations so we invite you to train your fruit eyes and pick for yourself, learn a bit about local trees and meet other Concrete Jungle volunteers. We’ll meet in the park and then split into groups – perhaps heading to a different part of town depending on interest.

Also, Doghead is producing so much food y’all! Come help us keep it up. Dates in the calendar on the right.

Fruit Tree Identification Workshop

Tuesday, March 25 – 5:30-7:00
East Atlanta Library

CJ volunteers and those in search of fruit: Learn about the fruits of Atlanta, how to identify fruit trees, their blooms, and how to help Concrete Jungle donate more fresh local produce to those in need. We’ll give a short presentation then hit the streets.

Bloom boom y’all….. it’s happening!
