Plant, Learn, Harvest, Celebrate! Join us at an upcoming orchard event.
We invite you to join POP and our community partners in a wide range of events including planting and caring for orchards across the city; tree plantings; workshops and other educational programs about ecological orchard care and related topics; POPHarvest gleaning opportunities; and harvest festivals and other community events! Volunteers of all ages and skill levels are welcome at planting and orchard care events. Please RSVP below in order to receive detailed event directions and updates and so that we know how many volunteers to expect. We also encourage you to join POP’s volunteer email list to receive announcements of new events and opportunities to get involved.
To support the safety of POP staff, partners, and the wider community, the majority of scheduled programming for the month of March has been canceled/postponed due to the spread of the 2019 novel coronavirus. At this time, POP is planning to hold the 3/22 grafting workshop and orchard work days currently scheduled for April, but please check POP’s website before attending an event as this may change.
If you signed up for a workshop, you should have received an email from us– we hope to reschedule these for later in the season. POP can transfer your registration or refund the fees, or you can choose to make a donation to POP to support our ongoing work. We’ll continue to create educational materials about ecological orchard care, plant info sheets, school lesson plans, and more, and invite you to visit POP’s Resource page and blog for some great reading material. Many POP partner sites, like The Woodlands, remain open to visitors even if not for large groups or events.
Thank you for your understanding and take care.
