Let's have some nice time sharing only fresh fruit - please bring your favorites, ready to eat.

On second Sunday of every second month, at 2 pm, in Oceanside, California.

To attend, please follow these necessary steps:
  1. Text me (Lena) to confirm that you are coming before the day of the event.
    If it is your first time, please include your name and a short introduction, and I will text you the exact address by the morning of the event day:
    • 3to3-686-1771 *
  2. Bring fruit - fresh, clean, and ready to serve, your favorite or seasonal.

My place is to the North of the airport on 76, on a hill (see the map below).

Please do not share my address that I text you, rather ask your friends to text me themselves.

How We Do It:

  • We will enjoy conversations and fruits.
  • We will arrange all the fruits in one place and everybody will take what they like.
  • We will use porcelain plates and silverware - no need to bring plastic one-time use items.
  • We can sit in a circle at a large table in a room, and if more people want to come, we can also sit by a coffee table the the the bar stand. Once we gathered outside by the garden on picnic blankets.

Answers to Already Asked Questions:

  • What if I don't want to eat fresh fruit at this time?
    Bring fruits that others would likely enjoy.
  • What if I cannot get any fresh fruits?
    Bring seeds or fruit drinks, like nuts and juices, or even coffee.
  • What kind of fruits should I bring?
    Any kind, sweat or non-sweet, but tasty, ripe, and undamaged.
  • How much fruit should I bring?
    Enough to satiate 1-2 people. For example, 2 pounds of grapes, or 6 large apples, or a melon.
  • Why only fruit?
    1. Fruits are one of the most environmentally friendly, ethical, healthy, and universal foods.
    2. Fruits are easy, no cooking, no special ingredients that someone might not like.
    3. Nobody else in my area organizes fruitarian events, the are rare everywhere, and as a long-term fruitarian I want to do something about it. Even vegan, vegetarian or plant-based gatherings are hard to find.
    4. In my opinion, people should eat more fresh fruits and vegetables (including non-sweet fruits like tomatoes, peppers, squash, eggplant, or cucumbers) to live longer and healthier.
    5. A fresh fruit meal might become an example to form a nice habit: once a month, a week, or even daily fruit only lunch or dinner.
    6. It is worth my effort to organize a fruitluck privately because restaurants rarely offer fruit dishes.
    7. I want to try to give good people a friendly environment to respectfully appreciate or challenge each other's big ideas - without advertisement, money pressure, distractions, but with a pleasant view on a tiny orchard. To do that on a regular basis I need to motivate myself with fruit and ease of management :)

Keep in touch!

About my location:

In 2018 I moved to Oceanside, California, and now live and work on a hill between a lake to the East, a river to the South with a trail to the Pacific Ocean over 3 miles to the West, and the wildness  on the Marine Corps territory to the North:
