The team behind the giant, global urban foraging map FallingFruit.org want to put their map at your fingertips, on your phone. Since launching from Boulder, Colorado last year, the map has grown to over half a million edible locations worldwide and garnered an active user base spanning all seven continents. A veritable Wikipedia for urban foraging, the map is created by and for its users. With a mobile app, they will be able to easily browse, interact with and add to the map as they move about the world. “We want to make the urban harvest as accessible as possible. A mobile app is the next obvious step.” said Caleb Phillips, who cofounded Falling Fruit with Ethan Welty in March 2013.
There is currently a crowdfunding effort to build this app. Please donate here http://www.barnraiser.us/projects/fallingfruit-org-mobilize-the-urban-harvest. Any donations need to be made by May 30, 2014.
