Partner Plantings

Partner Planting are scheduled at various locations, based on public interest and commitment to keep up with the planted trees.  Most plantings are public planting demonstrations, which means that all members of the community are invited to attend.  Interested in having a free planting at your location?  Contact: partnerplantings@bloomingtoncommunityorchard.org
