Community Fruit Trees


The Latrobe Health Assembly is seeking community feedback and expressions of interest on a potential new program to harvest excess home grown fruit and distribute it throughout our community.

The concept would see people who are fed up with raking up rotten fruit off their garden, allow volunteers to come and pick the fruit. The volunteers then preserve the fruit and distribute it throughout the community via FoodBanks, local “community pantries” and other fresh food distribution points.

We would like to hear what the community thinks about the concept at the individual or household level. Would you be willing to have your excess fruit picked and shared? Or if you have a bit of a “green thumb”, would you like to volunteer in either the picking process, the preserving process or both?

Would you like to provide feedback or register your interest in participating?

Below we have two sections setup:

  • Register your interest: Complete a basic form that will guide you through what parts of this concept you might be interested in. Please note, at this point we are just looking for expressions of interest. If the project goes ahead, we will make contact with you.
  • Feedback and ideas: If you have any thoughts or suggestions regarding this project, we'd love to read about them. Please use this tool to provide any ideas you might have to make this project even better.
