As a youngster, my friends and I would go into the fields nearby and pick blackberries, then step on lizards tails and watch them squirm, then go back to picking blackberries. A very fond memory. And while I’m pretty sure the Fallen Fruit collective doesn’t promote reptile torture, they do believe in the idea of public fruit. This concept began as an activist art project where people would map public fruit in neighborhoods, encouraging the public to sample and harvest fruit. They believe fruit should be a resource that is commonly shared and often times, people have wonderful stories about fruit, the history of where the seeds or tree came from.
