That the fruit doesn't have to fall far from the tree

Some property owners in Atlanta have too much of a good thing when it comes to the fruit- and nut-bearing trees on their land. Thankfully, the folks at Concrete Jungle are at the ready so all that good bounty doesn't go to waste. With permission, of course, Concrete Jungle visits neighborhood yards, roadside spots, and building locations to shake the trees, scoop up the harvest, and donate it to local food banks and shelters. Since its founding in 2009, the group has donated more than 10,000 pounds of produce to help feed the homeless and others in need. That's a whole lotta apples, pears, quince, pomegranates, and persimmons.
