We have a great service up and running for Bellingham and Whatcom County. Urbangardenshare.org ~ Please utilize this free service.
Also, Anneke ~ tell your friend to shoot me an email, email@example.com as I have a garden in the Roosevelt Neighborhood that I could use some help with. Thanks
I think Roosevelt has a school garden and there is also one at 2527 Pacific St -- at the home of Megan West, not sure of the status of it.
Hello BUGS, Bellingham community members, gardeners, and tree owners
Below is info about the Urban Fruit Registry.
The Urban Fruit Registry is an effort to map existing fruit trees in order to facilitate the management and harvest of the tree fruit. People are able to register their tree online through BUGS as we create a data base of existing fruit trees and other resources. The map will then be used as a tool to facilitate development of questions and answers about local food security, as well as assist with the maintenance of this community asset.
Every year hundreds of pounds of fruit falls into yards and streets around Bellingham, while utilization of our local food banks has sky rocketed. In response to this fallen fruit, the need for a facilitated gleaning and maintenance effort is apparent. Fruit is a resource for our entire community. Help us create a healthy food system in Bellingham.
If you own a fruit tree, please fill out this survey. This is important in development of a local food mapping project we are working on (plus it is my final project for a GIS class and will help me graduate so I can work on these projects with more attention).
Besides the survey the Urban fruit network assists with;
Growing (urban orchards, private yards)
Gleaning (picking and distributing)
….Of fruit and nut trees in Bellingham
BUGS is currently maintaining fruit trees on public and private property, caring for these local resources and directing surplus to local food banks and BUGS volunteers. If you would like assistant with any of the above options please fill out the survey or contact us at
