[***This harvest is in 2 locations a block away from each other, one of which is inside a gated community. Please come to gate entrance on Edwin St between Ridge Ave and Leland St and call if you don't see people. We also may be harvesting around the corner inside the community orchard on Leland Street.]
Harvest, taste, and learn to love the delicious, native Amelanchier just as much as we do! Commonly referred to as the Juneberry, Serviceberry, Shadbush, Saskatoon, and more, Amelanchier berries taste like a blueberry-cherry with edible almond seeds, and they're planted ALL over Philly as landscape plants, street trees, and in POP's community orchards. We're hosting harvests, local food and beverage industry features, and incorporating juneberry time into our Annual Strawberry Festival! Bring your own harvest bag and bucket.
