Fruit in Public Spaces – Mundraub und Fruchtfliege

Mundraub is an online project of TerraConcordia gUG, which maps publicly accessible fruit trees with Google Maps and publishes their locations. The sites of wild, unused, or public fruit trees, berries, and herbs can be registered and accessed by any user on an interactive map. Some basic rules call for respecting private property, taking care not to harm the trees and the surrounding flora and fauna – in short: to behave fairly. Since launching in 2009, more than half a million people have accessed the site, and several hundred are actively working on the online fruit tree map.

Fruchtfliege is an app for all common smartphones. The Fruchtfliege app makes it easy to find fruit trees on public land. Orchards can be found everywhere on the countryside, but fruit isn’t so easy to find in the city. Our maps contain the locations of fruit trees found by our users, as well as open administrative data (data.wien.gv.at) of the Wiener Stadtgartenamtes (Vienna City Gardens). The locations are sorted by fruit type and harvest time, indicate size and geo-reference, and also include kitchen tips!
