City Fruit has been providing ongoing support for our orchard. When the Holy Cross Church was built, it was on the site of an old farm. The orchard was preserved, but not much was done with it over the years. Through much volunteer work from our congregation and City Fruit volunteers in the past year, the orchard is once again thriving.
City Fruit works neighborhood by neighborhood to help residential tree owners grow healthy fruit, to harvest and use what they can, and to share what they don’t need. City Fruit collaborates with others involved in local food production, climate protection, horticulture, food security and community-building to protect and optimize urban fruit trees. They have classes too!
