Old Schoolhouse Community Garden, friendly home to many permaculture courses and workshops, has received a generous grant from The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation to plant an orchard on the grounds of the Old Schoolhouse Garden. This new orchard will create an outdoor edible orchard-classroom, as well as provide fresh fruit to local food pantries and community members.
Oodles of volunteers are needed to help with the planting, so bring a friend, neighbor, partner, child(ren), or co-worker! A headcount is needed, as the number of trees they receive is based on the number of volunteers. It will be a fun day for all ages!
Please dress appropriately for the weather, including hat, sunscreen, and snowsuit. You never know with Chicagoland weather!
To RSVP or for more information, call (708)[masked] or email [masked].
