Local Fruit Trees Need YOU!

Want to learn about fruit trees and steward our local assets?

The Green Thumb Orchard is a historic orchard within the Learning Gardens Laboratory at Green Thumb (6801 SE  60th). The orchard is co-operatively managed by Portland Community Gardens and the Portland Fruit Tree Project.

Portland Fruit Tree Project is seeking volunteers to help maintain the trees and harvest the fruit, half of which is donated to those in need. Training is provided to all Tree Care Team members. This year our goal is to engage more residents of the surrounding neighborhoods, including Mt. Scott-Arleta!
