Eat your neighbours’ fruit
Ever get the urge to steal your neighbours’ fruit? Now you may not have to.
A new food foraging website ‘Ripe Near Me’ has users sign up and display their backyard wares on an interactive map to sell, swap or give away. The website aims to reduce food waste, encourage stronger links between producers and consumers and eventually “get a good percentage of your diet from your own neighbourhood.” Users can also ‘subscribe’ to a particular crop, for example a local orange tree, and receive an email when the fruit is ripe for the picking.
