Starting at noon on Sunday, the Milagro Allegro Community Garden in Highland Park will be giving away 400 bare-root fruit and nut trees, thanks to an anonymous donor, reports the LA Times. Milli Macen-Moore, Milagro Allegro's resident master gardener and teacher, was reportedly contacted by the donor who had read the garden's blog and wanted to do something nice.

The fruit trees selected for the giveaway grow well in the area -- almond, apple, apricot, Black Mission fig, Desert Delight nectarine,three types of peach, Monterrey pear and dwarf Santa Rosa plum -- and will be passed out first-come, first-serve for as long as they last, notes the LA Times.

School and community gardens can request up to five of the donated trees. Home gardeners may request two. Remember to bring bags, newspaper and anything else you need to transport your trees!
