A Simple Idea....OPEN SOURCE CITRUS

Provide local sources of public fruit by planting Satsuma and other citrus trees on maintained but underused urban spaces.

  • A fresh food source for our community by our community
  • CITY CITRUS is local, sustainable, and open-source.
  • Beautifies the urban environment and adds to the diminishing local treescape.   
  • Enhances neighborhood involvement and well-being.
  • Open-Source Citrus:  EVERYONE may pick some fruit from CITY CITRUS trees.

CITY CITRUS is a www.batonrougegreen.com program.

Thank you to Winifred and Kevin Reilly who generously donated seed money for this project.
