Did you know?

Volunteers are leading the way in establishing community orchards in a number of City parks and community gardens. In the spring fruit trees need to be pruned to spur new growth and to shape the tree for good air flow and sun exposure. We need to lay mulch to help protect the growing root system. The trees will need lots of water. There is lots to do and we’d love your help!

Connected with the Peterborough Community Orchard Stewards through this Facebook group.
