To all of you that didn’t come out and help plant trees with us on Sunday: it was probably very nice inside your warm homes away from the snow outside. But still, shame on you.
We probably could not have picked a worse day for planting a bunch of trees, but c’est la vie. There were about 9 of us altogether, and we got 15 trees in the ground in 3 different locations in about 2 hours. Not bad! They will soon appear on the food map, but we had 2 persimmons, 2 figs, 3 pears, 6 apples, and 2 plums go in.
We cannot thank our volunteers enough for doing manual labor on the coldest day in a long time, and we owe much gratitude to those of you whose donations made these mini orchards possible in the first place. Thank you all so much!
We may have also recently received a small cache of fruit trees unexpectedly donated to us, so we will hopefully have some more orchard projects in the near future. Stay tuned!
