Fruit Orchard

The goal of the Growing West Side Orchard Project is to improve access to fresh, local food, increase our communities knowledge and connection to healthy food sources and strengthen community relationships by sharing in the on going care of our orchards.

Our first orchard was installed in the fall of 2014 at Station 6 Firehouse on Cesar Chavez. There are plans to expand that to other locations. We could use your help in identifying potential locations, and as a volunteer to help plant, and maintain our orchards.  If you have ideas about fruit orchards on the West Side, or just want to help out, please email
