Guerrilla Grafters, The Secret Association That Turns The Trees Of Your City Into Fruit Trees

Guerrilla Grafters, the secret association that turns the trees of your city into fruit trees

Since 2011 in San Francisco, a group calling itself Guerrilla Grafters has been modifying the ornamental trees of the city. They graft them into fruit trees so they can provide families with fewer resources of free fresh fruit.

The Guerrilla Grafters see the trees in their city as a missed opportunity to provide free, healthy and fresh food to the people. That is their philosophy.

This practice is illegal, so they do it clandestinely and secretly. If we think about it, it would be incalculable to know how many resources are allocated to the maintenance of ornamental plants in the cities, when in many of those same cities, there are families who cannot have access to seasonal fruits and vegetables due to their low economic resources.

Once a tree is grafted, they notify the community to take care of it and take charge of harvesting it. In this way they prevent the fruit from falling to the ground, generating dirt and pests.
