Fruit Tree Orchard in Walker's Point

As you may recall, in a previous blog post I shared the video that CORE/El Centro and Bucketworks put together which won a fruit and nut tree orchard for our neighborhood.

Last Saturday a number of volunteers came out to help plant 23 of the 26 trees for our neighborhood (a few trees are delayed in arriving).

Here are some photos - there was a second 'wave' of volunteers from Victory Garden Initiative who had their own photographer, so I don't have photos here of that group, but will post a link to their photos once it's up.
Our 23 trees, bushes, and vines ready to be put in the ground!
