Forest Ave Community Orchard Planting Day & Groundbreaking Event

Orchard Friends!

The dream is soon to be a reality! After months of planning and countless hours of preparation by a committed group of dedicated volunteers, the ORCHARD IS READY TO BE PLANTED!!!

Please join us THIS SATURDAY (May 16th) at 10:30 am as we plant 20 trees, native pollinator flowers, and set posts for the trellis! There will be snacks and refreshments for all.

The Orchard is located at 334 Forest Ave. (North of University and West of 2nd Ave.). This is currently a vacant lot between 2 houses and is easy to drive right past. It is located on the south side of Forest ave. You may park in the street on the south side of Forest Ave, or on 3rd or 4th Streets. Wear clothes to get dirty/muddy in. We will have tools and work gloves available, but you are free to bring you own if you desire. This event is RAIN OR SHINE!
