Community Co-Creation

Portland Fruit Tree Project

Portland Fruit Tree Project’s mission is to increase equitable access to healthful food and strengthen communities by empowering neighbors to share in the harvest and care of city-grown produce. 

Register your fruit tree with Portland Fruit Tree Project to share your harvest with neighbors in need and receive a $50 discount on pruning; ask PFTP for a CCP gift card or contact me directly. The discount endures, and applies to long-time registrants and new registrants alike. Let's work together for healthy trees, good consistent harvests and fewer empty plates in our hometown.

The Forest Park Conservency

Beginning Feb. 1st, 2013 through to the end of the year, Co-Creative Pruning donates 10% of your bill to The Forest Park Conservancy, designated for habitat restoration and removal of invasive species.

The portion of your bill to be donated to the FPC is recorded on your signed free estimate. When you choose Co-Creative Pruning and our work is completed and reviewed with you, we set aside the FPC's share of your payment to be delivered to them at the end of each month. 

The environment and infrastructure necessary to sustain a bicycle-based business is a gift to us from you, the Portland community. The 10% we save on truck maintenance and gasoline is donated to your beautiful park as our way of giving back, with our thanks.

Forest Park is the largest forested city park in the United States. 

It is threatened by invasive plants and by regional development disruptive to wild life corridors and bird migration routes. 

The mission of the Forest Park Conservancy is to protect and foster the ecological health of Forest Park, maintain and enhance the park's extensive trail network, and inspire community appreciation and future stewardship. 

It's a mission that Co-Creative Pruning believes in. 

If you believe, here's how you can help:

Urban Bees and Gardens

Creating a home for pollinators is a tribute to your trees and a service to your community. 

Eliminating toxins, providing habitat, and establishing food sources are easy ways to diversify your yard and preventing an environmental imbalance that leaves harmful pests, bacteria, and fungi to dominate the landscape unchallenged. 

If you would like to take a step farther, Portland Beekeeper Brian Lacy says that hosting your own honeybees is a healthful and fruitful hobby that is much easier than you think.
