Urban orchards aren’t new. It’s just that we haven’t seen them for a long, long time! In fact, there used to be a lot of orchards within the city limits, most of them on private property. In recent years, there has been a resurgence of interest & passion for growing food in cities. Take Seattle, for example.
As our communities have less & less public space, we are reminded of the importance of communal places – they serve so many purposes – including, growing food!
Join the Mount Hope – Breithaupt Park Neighbourhood Association to explore the possibility of growing an orchard in the ‘hood!
