Community Orchard Planting Extravaganza!
February 4, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Yes the day has finally come! Join us in planting fruit trees at YOUR community orchard, right off the levee path near the San Lorenzo rivermouth. Help create the world you want to live in!
This public orchard (started in 2014 by the Santa Cruz Fruit Tree Project and Seed Culture Labs, in collaboration with City of Santa Cruz Parks and Recreation) is launching a major expansion from its first site in Riverside Gardens Park (where a dozen apples, pears and citrus are already thriving), to a much larger plot across the street at Mike Fox Park, adjacent to the skate park and pickleball courts. We’ll be planting a couple of dozens of additional varieties of flora, including various citrus and other subtropicals, plums, apricots, peaches, apples, pears, and more.
Come join the fun to connect with great people, throw down with a shovel and mattock, or just learn or teach a thing or two about fruit tree culture.
