Pando Branches will be an Open Source Web and Mobile app that aims to spread and automate much of the workload for coordinating the harvest of fruit trees in urban Saskatoon neighbourhoods.

Neighbourhood coordinators, harvest volunteers, tree owners, and charity groups will all be part of this system. Pando Branches will capture tree type and volunteer data sorted by neighbourhood, later to be viewed in visual reports and on an interactive map.

The app will be used by a local Saskatoon-based group called Out of Your Tree (OoYT). The group harvests fruits and 1/3 of the fruits go to the tree owner, 1/3 to volunteers, and 1/3 are donated.

We will be partaking in the Saskatchewan Intercultural Association Inc. (SIA) mentorship program as mentors.

Big thanks to EcoFriendlySask for the Action Grant we received for this project.
