How It All Began: The Story of Not Far From The Tree

Laura Reinsborough, founder of Not Far From The Tree shares the story of how it all began on the TEDx stage.

Not Far From The Tree was founded in 2008. During our first harvest season, we picked and shared over 3,000 pounds of fruit from one neighbourhood with the help of crew of 150 volunteers. We’ve grown a lot since then thanks to the amazing support of the community!
