Roseville has partnered with The Food Group to create a community orchard. The Orchard includes fruit trees, shrubs, vines and vegetables. The project:
• provides long-term fresh food access to those in need
• creates opportunities to learn & practice tree care & harvesting techniques
• improves the health of Roseville’s residents and environment
• shares information with other communities interested in starting publicly accessible edible landscapes.
Individuals are encouraged to get involved in creating a living laboratory for teaching residents how to care for and grow their own sustainable food source. Educational opportunities include pruning, weeding and harvesting. Contact the Volunteer Coordinator at 651-792-7028 if you are interested in helping.
