Mayor Adams Breaks Soil for Sabin Community Orchard

Saturday, February 13th, Mayor Adams, Commissioner Fritz and The Fruit Tree Project joined the Sabin community to plant fruit trees at Sabin's new Community Orchard. Supported by a grant from the city’s Neighborhood Small Grants Program, we planted pear, Asian pear, apple, persimmon, fig, plum and cherry trees in the stretch of land between NE 18th and 19th. Sabin stewards will maintain and pick the fruit, in part to benefit local charitable organizations’ food pantries. Thank you to Jeff Strang, Rosemarie Cordello and Katy Kolker for your leadership that made this project such a success. Thank you to all of our community members who came out to participate in the event!
