This event is being sponsored by the Regional Environmental Council, the Worcester Common Ground, New Lands Farm, Lutheran Social Services, and the Worcester Tree Initiative.

The sponsors make have used services like poster printing to share information about this meeting and discussion with people that reside in this community, as well as those from outside the area who may take an interest.

This discussion, ‘Fruit for Worcester’, will help people to understand how much interest there is in growing fruit trees, how to identify locations throughout the city in which orchards can be established, and how to come to a decision on which fruits the community is interested in growing. There will also be discussion on some of the challenges and opportunities that could exist for the potential fruit orchards.
