POPCORE combines many elements of orchard stewardship, ecosystem design, and food uses that POP has learned over the past twelve years.  This four part series is intended to grow the knowledge, skillset, and self-reliance of our community orchard partners and volunteers, resulting in happier, healthier, and more productive community orchards.  

Those completing all four classes over any two year period will receive POPCORE Urban Orchardist Certification!

Space is limited, pre-registration required!  

Certified child care is available, but advance notification by the Sunday preceding the workshop is required. Children must be potty-trained. Please confirm your need for child care via info@phillyorchards.org by Sunday, March 5th!
