Columbia Children’s Arboretum Orchard Maintenance & Harvesting Party

Partnership between Portland Parks & Recreation, Portland Fruit Tree Project and the East Columbia Neighborhood Association

Saturday September 22nd 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
Saturday October 13th 9:00 am to 12:00 pm

Columbia Children’s Arboretum orchard has more than 40 apple trees, planted in 1977 by Columbia School Children. The orchard is maintained by Portland Parks & Recreation and the East Columbia Neighborhood Association. This orchard is a wonderful resource for the community and produces a lot of fruit. Your help is needed to make the most of the orchard. This event will focus on removing the over-wintering habitat of orchard pests by composting rotting apples, raking leaves and of course harvesting fruit!
