Fruit Tree Orchard

  • It was truly a collaborative effort to plan, plot, dig, plant and water our ten fruit trees in the courtyard! Together we planted two orange trees, four fig trees, a black mulberry tree, a kumquat and two quince trees.  

    More than 500 students and adults had a hand in this project as we planted the first of our fruit-bearing trees in the new orchard.  The community orchard will someday bear fruit that everyone will be able to enjoy as they harvest the fruits of their labor for years to come.  

    Eventually, we'll serve food from the orchard and gardens in our school lunch program. We will also give back to the greater community as we use the gifts of our land to feed others less fortunate than ourselves.
