Interested in growing food in public spaces, while working with your neighbors on a fun project? Become a Sabin Community Orchard Steward!
The Sabin Community Orchard is a collaborative project between the Portland Fruit Tree Project and the Sabin Community Association, designed to provide delicious fruits and berries - and an opportunity to learn about edible gardening. It's located on a small city-owned lot on Mason Ave, between 18th and 19th.
Orchard Stewards commit to:
* attend an orientation meeting on Tuesday, February 12
* participate in monthly work & learn parties, from 2:00 - 4:00 on the third Sunday, February - November
* be the note-taker for one or two of the work & learn parties, and share your notes with others
* one mid-summer watering shift to keep the young trees and shrubs healthy
To apply, request an application by calling 503-284-6106 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with "Sabin Orchard Steward Interest" in the subject line. Applications are due Friday, February 1. No experience is necessary, though gardening or orchard experience is a plus!
