Good-Hearted Graffiti Promotes Botany, Snacking
Or guerrilla fruit grafting. As the Huffington Post reports, "For the past year, the renegade group has been secretly splicing San Francisco's strictly decorative apple and pear trees with fruit-bearing grafts, causing the city's previously barren trees to become heavy with fresh apples and pears. The group aims to use the city's preexisting trees to provide 'delicious, nutritious fruit for urban residents,' and basically feed anyone who is hungry in the process." The group's open source code site offers advice on finding graftable trees and tracks how the grafts are going.

But really, how upset can anyone be over beautiful, delicious fruit?
