Event Details

JOIN US-- Grow to Give Orchard Work Days

It's time for another year of fun and rewarding work in our Grow to Give orchard on Harvest Hill!

BACKGROUND

In March, 2015, The Urban Farmers, ILM Tree and Sienna Ranch organized our communities to come together and plant an orchard so that we could grow fruit for local food banks. A few times a year we call the community back to help tend to the orchard, have fun, and get to know each other better.
