Lee Huss, Urban Forester with the City of Bloomington, and Communications Team member Sarah Vaughan discussed the role the City's Parks Department has played in the Orchard's development.
Local artist and Orchard volunteer Jack Brubaker, seen above with Amy Countryman, spoke with Communications Team member Sarah Vaughan about the Orchard's design.
"It kind of wows me that people work so hard on this orchard—fruit trees take a long time to produce—and they may not benefit. The benefits are for people they may never meet."
We have some work to do while the trees are dormant. Join us for Saturdays and Sundays this winter to prune, spray dormant oil, and do some winter maintenance.
From the looks of it, the Orchard has gone dormant, but there are actually countless tiny green sprouts growing happily under blankets of hay in Orchard beds.
