Delicious fruits and veggies may be closer than you think. With this Cool Site, you can see the best local spots to find all types of free food. Exploring your city for the best fresh food is not a new idea; "urban harvesting" is already being done by millions of people around the world.

Urban harvesting is the latest trend where you hunt for fresh food ingredients around your community. From apple trees in a city park to rosemary along the sidewalk, you'd be surprised how many tasty fruits, veggies and spices are hidden in your neighborhood. And today, my Cool Site will show you how to find them.

The detailed map on Falling Fruit tells you exactly what food is around you and gives you a specific geo-location tag so you can be directed straight to it. Find the perfect addition to your salmon dinner entree, or the perfect greens to prepare a delicious summer salad.

All of these ingredients can be found in your city and they are totally free. That's the beauty of Falling Fruit.

My only tip when using this site would be to make sure that you are on public property when you are "urban harvesting." You don't want to be caught in someone's backyard eating their prized plums.

Click on the big blue link below to check out what's growing around you. And after you give "urban harvesting" a shot, leave me a note in the comments section about how it went! I'd love to hear what you think about this Cool Site.
