Ben Nobleman Park Community Orchard
On June 4, 2009, our little orchard was planted in Ben Nobleman Park, an underused green space just across from Eglinton West Subway station in Toronto. We have 14 fruit trees including 5 apples, 3 plums, 3 apricots and 3 sweet cherries. Once our trees are old enough to produce a good harvest, the fruit will go to volunteers and to the community.
Our orchard park has become a place for the community to volunteer and socialize, to have blossom and fruit festivals, pruning workshops, orchard picnics, children’s educational workshops and other community events.
If you’d like to join our mailing list to find out about volunteering opportunities and other updates about the orchard, send a blank email to Lynn at firstname.lastname@example.org
