Community Orchard Ground-Breaking at Riverside Gardens Park

February 15, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Riverside Community Orchard

Join the Fruit Tree Project and lower Ocean neighbors in this literally ground-breaking event: the planting of a community fruit orchard at Riverside Gardens Park.

The Fruit Tree Project, in collaboration with a group of neighbors and permaculture leaders, is working with the City to develop parts of this new park into a community orchard. Get down and dirty with us as we prepare the soil and irrigation and put in a line of public fruit trees.

More than just a work day to get the trees in the ground, this event will be a big community celebration, complete with live music and a potluck picnic. So bring a shovel, a friend, some food to share, and your digging/dancing shoes!

We also encourage financial donations to help us cover our costs and continue this kind of work. You can donate through our website: fruitcruz.org/donate.
