During the summer and fall of 2015 Calgary EATS! partnered with Calgary Harvest to complete a study of urban fruit production in Calgary. The study was led by a voluntary committee from Calgary EATS! and was funded by The City of Calgary’s Office of Sustainability.
Over 50% of the study participants reported losing fruit to spoilage, and a large amount of that fruit ended up in the landfill. These statistics highlight a strong need for education on the alternatives. People need information and access to resources in order to reduce the urban fruit waste going to the landfill.
We want you to join the #urbanfruityyc movement!
