We’re looking for help to plant an edible orchard right here in Roseville. Join us on Saturday, May 14 to plant apple, plum, cherry, pear, and apricot trees at the Muriel Sahlin Arboretum.
Participants will plant 60 trees and shrubs while learning about the project and how to care for fruit-bearing trees and shrubs.
The City of Roseville is partnering with The Food Group, a non-profit organization that provides healthy foods and other resources to more than 200 hunger relief agencies in Minnesota. One way they do this is through the Fruits of the City program, which helps communities grow and harvest local fruit for those in need.
The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, through the Wells Fargo Environmental Solutions for Communities, funded a $40,500 grant to establish an orchard of fruit-bearing trees and shrubs at the arboretum. It will also include vegetable plots that will be used for educational programs.
Saturday, May 14, rain or shine
10:00 a.m. to noon
Muriel Sahlin Arboretum, 2525 North Dale St.
