SAVE THE DATE: September 15, 2012 brings the launch of the Guelph Community Orchard Project! Please plan to join us at Harcourt Memorial United Church, 87 Dean Avenue in Guelph, 9:30am to 1pm, for tree planting, and a community celebration and barbeque.
What is the Guelph Community Orchard Project?
· We are Guelph’s first urban community-shared orchards! Our project will be launched in September with the planting of fruit and nut trees on two urban sites – Guelph Community Christian School, and Harcourt Memorial United Church.
· A collaborative project of Transition Guelph, Guelph Urban Forest Friends, Trees for Guelph and other partners, with startup funding support from TreeCanada
· We aim to increase food security, add to Guelph’s tree canopy and green infrastructure, nurture community relationships, and foster fruit and nut tree awareness through our project. Produce will be shared through local food distribution sites.
· Watch for opportunities to adopt a tree, get involved in planting or promotion, design with permaculture, and eventually, food workshops with fresh fruit!
We hope to see you at Harcourt Church on the 15th!
