Building communities or being part of a community is ever more important. Too many people live alone, we are getting older and our standard family unit is a world away from our parents lives. We are in fact, lonelier.
Connecting to others, through groups and forums – online or in person, is becoming vital for self belief and self worth. Take the need for connection and another great growth area – grow your own, and you have a super concept called ‘Fallen Fruit’.
Fallen Fruit is an activist art project based in Los Angeles that maps all the public fruit – on or, overhanging public spaces – in the neighbourhood. Take a look at their website here – it’s a lovely read.
How very neighbourly.
