I sure how they do it near me.A group of food freedom fighters are sneaking out in the middle of the night (and sometimes in broad daylight) grafting fruit-producing limbs onto sterile urban trees, specifically bred not to bear fruit.
Known as the “Guerilla Grafters,” their mission is to provide free, healthy food where it’s needed most – urban food deserts.
Ever wonder why none of the trees in big cities produce anything useful, like nuts or fruit? According to the Guerilla Grafters, it’s because they are intentionally bred not to.
City planners specifically select sterile varieties of many common fruit trees (apples, pears, plums, cherries) because of their beauty to decorate their streets.
But they don’t want to be held liable for any potentially slippery messes fallen fruit could create on city sidewalks, or any animals it could attract (think bees, birds, squirrels)
I do understand the cities position, we live in a country that LOVES fucking lawsuits because the coffee was hot, there are a gazillion POS "lawyers" just lining up for whatever you wish to sue and fighting these POS blood suckers takes money.
