Fruktsam is all about taking care of edibles such as fruit, berries, nuts and greens that grow in public spaces and to spread knowledge about this.
During 2014-2015, Fruktsam organized study circles and fruit picking events around the environmental and social benefits of harvesting local and seasonal fruits and greens. We have also made our own jam in collaboration with Lund’s Municipal Housing Company (LKF) and the City of Lund called Lundasylt out of local berries and fruit.
During 2016, there is the possibility to start a study circle about seasonal edible fruits in public spaces and/or continue to host seasonal events in collaboration with municipal actors. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in starting a group.

Possible Face-To-Face Activities:
- Between May and November, we could organize monthly picking events.
- Host seminars & workshops around the topic urban foraging.
- Form a study circle, where we can learn together about what can be harvested in public places, the environmental and social benefits of this and how to take care of our harvest.
