B Charron: "it says in genesis, "Multiple and be plentiful, and I believe this is what the proverb actually means; to produce, and propagate."

Cindl Bergen: I visited Central America years ago and witnessed fruit trees growing in abundance throughout the urban areas. Then I returned to America and became enraged every time I saw a Bradford "Pear" on a city street. We need free and sustainable food in our society.

Justin Lee Henson: #GangstaGardening  evolves into #GangstaGrafting  

The #GuerrillaGrafters   are a group of #SanFranciscans  who believe urban trees are a precious thing to waste on simple flowers. Their goal is to #graft - albeit illegally- #FruitBearing  branches onto non-fruit bearing #FruitTrees , in hopes that over time the cities ornamental trees can provide #food  for residents free of charge.

In this video, we follow Guerrilla Grafters #TaraHui  and #BookaAlon   as they check up on their surreptitious grafts, perform a bit of pruning and search for their trees' first fruit.

#RonFinley : are guys doing this in LA? 

juki0h: the chink sounds like a retarded 9 year old girl, lol

alphasxsignal: The city will lock her up for screwing with their trees.

Bohemian Wrecks: I have a buddy who has sown thousands of MaryJane seeds throughout a few cities. What a way to bless people.  I call him Johnny AppleWeed

tyreza79: can we graft any tree to any tree ? or there are rules ? in my city most trees have no familial relation to any fruit tree ? so whats is to do

Illyrien: Impressive, I did not know grafting could do that. I got to check out the limits, this should make it possible to make some rather interesting trees.

cryptoprocta: of course they would, but all of our food is heavily polluted with pesticides and herbicides anyway, and the same precautions would have to be taken before consumption

JeabAom555: Do the fruits pick up pollutants from the street environment?

caringpro: Thx, I'll check it out. I've never heard of it. Question: I have a useless ornamental manderin? orange tree which produces tin bitter oranges. Its in the dog run so gives shade to the dogs, I wouldn't want to get rid of it. but I'd like to change it into something edible fruit bearing. What would be good for grafting? Is it possible to get rid of the ornamental fruit & have the grafted branches take it over? If so, how? thx InventingJoy

ASK Wilde Hilde: Check out the Moringa oleifera Tree videos ... perfect for San Diego. An important food tree that could naturalize down there!!

Uni Emailer: Of course it's the people that don't pay attention that have the most stupidity to spread around. Did you miss the part where the trees have tenders to prevent such atrocities? You need to eat some fruit.

Uni Emailer: Jackass much?

Kevin Rack: Here is the future of food security and carbon tax.

mister bones: WHOA

LuckyGuu: please plant 100,000 Palm Trees around SF, especially The tenerloin! Buy small palms trees and do it, just do it

Soror Lourdes Metz: I LOVE THIS ONE! WHY NOT MAKE ORNAMENTAL TREES BECOME FULL OF FOOD, FREE FOR EVERYONE, ESPECIALLY HOMELESS.

caringpro: Fantastic!!! So you have some rodents.So import some feral cats. Big deal! Also, I dont think we ask enough of the public. They are required to cut the grass in front of their houses. they could be required to eat the fruit YUm! Or pick & donate it. Some really need it. What's the matter with us as a society? Its such a big deal to clean up some delicious fallen fruit? I want to join the guerilla grafting group in San Diego. Count me in. If I'm arrested, I'll get some writing done. InventingJoy

John Dorig: Love it!
