Community Orchard Planting
February 4, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Please join us to plant a new community orchard near downtown Santa Cruz. The ground-breaking event is scheduled for Saturday, February 4th, starting at 12pm at Mike Fox Park, alongside the river levee by the Riverside Ave bridge.
We’ll need a lot of hands to help with digging, making wire baskets, and setting in trees and flowering perennials. We have some tools to share, but if you have an extra shovel or pick axe please bring it along.
In addition to volunteer labor, we also need financial contributions to pay for the trees, gopher wire, and irrigation equipment. The Fruit Tree Project is an almost entirely-volunteer organization, and does not receive any grant funding. Please donate today to help us meet our goal of $2,500.
