Background and history:

What do apples and the Interstate 5 freeway corridor have in common?  Freeway Estates Community Orchard!  This little orchard with a big vision sits on an unlikely patch of ground between the 1-5 sound wall and a city street.  A tribute to neighborhood tenacity, the former tangle of invasive plants and trash has been transformed by volunteers into a fruit and nut orchard.
