Over the last few years Trees NC has placed a high priority on planting fruit bearing trees in a local neighborhood that is home to many lower income folks. The idea was that we could help produce pick-your-own fresh food - and create a sort of Food Oasis.
That idea really has born fruit - hundreds of pounds of it! And the folks in the neighborhood are making good use of those peaches, apples, figs and pears.
Thanks to our funding partners and volunteers that helped make East Side Grove a success!
