Imagine being part of realizing the potential and beauty of fully productive, well cared-for eco-orchards in every neighborhood! As the number of new Philadelphia Orchard Project partner orchards continue to grow and existing orchards reach maturity, we’re seeing more need for group trainings and face-to-face sharing between partners. We aim to encourage the self-sufficiency of our partners and connections between partners in close geographic proximity. With increased knowledge, attention, and combined resources, the average community orchard has the potential to produce hundreds of pounds of varied produce per season in addition to being a safe, beautiful outdoor space for gathering and education.
POPCORE combines many elements of orchard stewardship, ecosystem design, and food uses that POP has learned over the past ten years. In years past, one-off classes and The Orchard Committee have served this purpose.
Those completing all 4 classes within 2 years will receive POPCORE Urban Orchardist Certification!
