Over the years, word about Les Fruits Défendus has spread, and more and more members of the community are becoming interested in taking part in our initiative. As a testament to the appeal of our cause, our network has grown to over 300 trees and more than 250 active collective members in 2016.
Every year, we strive to offer as many picking opportunities as possible, ideally allowing each member of our large community of volunteers to participate in our initiative and enabling us to harvest as much fruit from as many of our trees as possible.
To continue developing our collective, we are seeking to grow our dedicated team of core members this season!
Les Fruits Défendus’ core team consists of approximately 5-10 volunteers who manage the collective’s administrative and logistical aspects year-round. Just as the core of a fruit keeps it thriving, our core team is essential to our collective – keeping it functioning and flourishing throughout each season, from one season to the next.
Joining the core team offers an experience of working with other like-minded people to plan and collaborate on day-to-day tasks and guide the fruit harvesting efforts of Les Fruits Défendus. It is a way to learn more or deepen experiences of working in a collaborative environment for the benefit of the environment. If you would like to increase your volunteer commitments or take on a leadership role in your community, then this is the opportunity for you. Please see the PDF below for the full description of the position and the application procedures.

We’re thrilled to have seen so much interest and enthusiasm from our tree owners and volunteer pickers, as well as from those in the rest of the community, over the years. We look forward to continuing to grow as a happy, healthy community that picks the most fruit possible! Thank you for your support of Les Fruits Défendus!
