Guelph Community Orchard Clean Up
May 7, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Guelph Community Orchard Project is a working group of Transition Guelph. GCOP is Guelph’s first ever community fruit and nut tree orchard in two locations – 87 Dean Avenue (Harcourt United Church) and 195 College Avenue West (Guelph Community Christian School). The orchard sites were planted in September 2012, are maintained by volunteers and the produce is available to anyone in the community of Guelph to pick for free. A portion of the harvest is supplied to two local food pantries, for folks who experience food insecurity in our city.
The GCOP’s next work ‘party’ at the Harcourt site is scheduled for Saturday, May 7, from 9 a.m.-noon. We will be engaged in a spring clean-up and preparing the site for further plantings. Come join the fun and get your hands dirty. Please bring fork/spade if possible. All are welcome. Contact Jill Gill at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
