Riverside Community Orchard

$1,900 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 43 people in 18 months
The Santa Cruz Fruit Tree Project has been working in collaboration with the City of Santa Cruz and with Andy Moskowitz of Seed Culture Labs ecological design to develop the city's first community orchard. We broke ground on Riverside Community Orchard in early 2015 when more than fifty volunteers came out to plant dwarf apple, pear, and citrus trees along a fence line at Riverside Gardens Park.

On February 4th, we'll launch a major expansion of the orchard, planting upwards of twenty  trees in nearby Mike Fox Park. The orchard will be tended by volunteers, and once the trees mature, their fruit will be available to all as a public resource.

The Fruit Tree Project is a volunteer organization, run and funded entirely by community members like you. Please donate to help us buy the trees, gopher wire, irrigation equipment, and other materials we need to get this orchard going strong.

Thanks for your support!

Thank you everyone who participated in the hole digging, tree planting event at the Riverside Community Orchard yesterday!

I want to eat an apple off a tree in Steve Schnaar's orchard in the future.

trees growing along the banks of the river ( versus growing IN the river ) is part of what is missing on the walk.
