Let's Dress Up Our Orchard!
We have small orchard with some fruit trees (apple, peach, and pear) that have been planted over the years. However, the orchard area is not mulched, and it is cumbersome for custodians to mow around the trees, especially if there is any fallen fruit on the ground. We would like to mulch around the orchard as well as to create 'food forests' under orchard trees with various perennials (ex. blueberries, lavender, yarrow). We would also like to get supplies to properly prune the trees and treat with organic, eco-friendly pesticides so that the fruit will be edible. We hope to add 3-6 more raised beds and purchase some dwarf citrus trees for our greenhouse (Meyer lemon, lime, orange).
