Community Orchards

About the program:

Community Orchards
Joining a Community Orchard is a wonderful way to learn new things, access fresh produce, and connect with your neighbors. We now have a community orchard in nearly every quadrant, and you're invited to join in the care (and harvest!) of your neighborhood orchard.

Through the Community Orchards Program, Portland Fruit Tree Project works with community partners to cultivate new and existing orchards on publicly accessible lands, providing educational opportunities in fruit tree cultivation and producing healthy food for Portland communities.

All community orchard events are free, kid- and family-friendly, and open to the public. Click the image to learn more about a specific orchard and upcoming events.

October is National NeighborWoods® Month! Arbor Day Foundation, through the Alliance for Community Trees, runs an annual campaign to plant and care for community trees during the month of October. Each year, tens of thousands of volunteers take action to make their communities greener and healthier by planting trees—keeping their neighborhoods vibrant.  Join the movement by joining us at an upcoming Community Orchard event.
