Clinton Ave Community Orchard Planting Day

December 3, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Free

We’re excited to embark on the first phase of a community orchard on Clinton Ave!

The Roots Foundation invites you to collaborate on the development of a community orchard on the hillside along Clinton Ave. at Vance Elementary. We will plant a variety of fruit trees, flowers, edible bushes and more, as well as share a creative, collaborative conversation about how the orchard can succeed as a true community-based project serving needs within the community. 
 
Schedule:
– 11:00am – Gather in the Vance Peace Garden for a discussion and overview of the project and a brief presentation about planting and caring for fruit trees. We will also spend some time discussing how to organize the use, care, and future expansion of the orchard
– 11:45am – 1:30pm – planting trees, shrubs, and herbs and developing the orchard space with paths, beds, steps, etc.
– 1:30 – 2:?? – sharing a potluck lunch, Roots Hummus, and hot cider
