Work Day – volunteer opportunity for new orchard!

Join LFTP for the first community work day at the Lawrence Community Orchard!

Saturday, March 17th from 9am to 3pm 

We will be removing sod and preparing planting holes for about 60 trees and shrubs. Many hands make light work!  Bring your friends and family for a fun day helping to create this community orchard. Most trees will be planted the following week. 


Bring shovels and work gloves.
 Bring a snack. We will provide refreshments. The 17th is also St. Patricks day so feel free to stay for as short or as long a time as you wish.

The orchard is located along Burroughs Creek Trail off of Garfield st. Here is a link to the Google map. On the map a drainage ditch is incorrectly labeled as Garfield, Garfield is actually to the south.  Note the green arrow:  CLICK HERE  

 Please do not park on Garfield St.   It is a narrow street with many driveways and we don’t want to inconvenience the neighbors. Park along Delaware or at the playground at 15th and Burroughs Creek. Riding a bike or walking would be a great way to get there.

Thanks!  We hope to see you then!
