Learn With Us!

City Fruit builds community through volunteer and educational events on planting, pruning, mulching, and pest management. These practices ensure access to healthy fruit trees for future generations and, when the harvest rolls around, the highest quality fruit for our communities all across the city.

Master Fruit Tree Steward

The MFTS program combines both classroom and urban orchard experiences to gain skills in orchard planning, young sapling care and training, and mature fruit tree maintenance!

Orchard Stewardship

We strive to connect neighbors to public orchards through volunteer and workshop opportunities in order to support social and environmental resiliency in our local food system.
