Opportunities to learn about Fruits of Diversity Community Orchard

Portland Fruit Tree Project and Village Gardens would like to invite you to a community planning and info session for Fruits of Diversity Community Orchard. We are about to start up our tree care season for 2015 and wanted to get the word out. This is a chance to learn about the orchard, meet other folks who are interested, or voice any feedback you may have about Fruits of Diversity. Both past and new volunteers are welcome to attend.

The session will take place on Wednesday, February 11 from 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM at 4610 N Trenton St, Rm 106 (just a couple of blocks down the street from the orchard and next to the Village Gardens office). Light refreshments will be served. Please RSVP by emailing Gareth at gareth@portlandfruit.org or by calling 503-284-6106.

If you can't make it, we'd love to see you at the first work party of the year, on Saturday, February 21st and 10:00 AM, where local landscaper Max Floyd will be leading the group in Winter Pruning. More information about the work party can be found at www.portlandfruit.org

  2. I think it awesome that you have organized a meeting to help with taking care of the orchard. I have a tree in my back yard that I love, but I am not sure how to give it the absolute best care. I would like to learn more about proper tree care. Is there a PDF for this meeting? tree trimming services

  3. Pruning an entire orchard can take quite some time. That is good that you have meetings to coordinate everything that needs to be done before pruning takes place. Even though there are tons of trees that need to be pruned, quality still needs to be achieved in every tree. If not, then you will have an orchard that won't produce adequate fruit. Quality is key when it comes to tree trimming. http://shadywoodtreeexperts.com
