About Philadelphia Orchard Project
POP works with community-based groups and volunteers to plan and plant orchard filled with useful and edible plants in formerly vacant lots, community gardens, schoolyards, and other spaces, primarily in low-wealth neighborhoods where people have limited access to fresh fruit. We provide orchard design assistance, plant materials, and training in orchard care. Community organizations own, maintain, and harvest the orchards, expanding community-based food production, environmental benefits, and opportunities for nature education.
POP generally plants during the spring and fall. Check back for volunteer events or join our listserv.
