Touring East Side Grove with an Expert

Bob Melonie is passionate about growing fruit trees  - and as a NC Master Gardener he has generously shared his knowledge and skill to help TreesNC develop our East Side Grove.

On June 30th, our TreesNC Youth Environmental Service (YES!) program continued with a grove tour and service activity for members of the Central Boys and Girls Club.

Club members learned about the variety of trees planted in our grove, helped water and plant new tree stock - and event picked some fresh peaches!

Thank you Bob for leading this program. 

And thank you to the organizations and individuals that have supported the TreesNC East Side Grove:  ACTrees, Randolph Hospital Community Health Foundation, Resourceful Communities - a program of The Conservation Fund, Wells Fargo and Park Foundation.
