The Philadelphia Orchard Project, based here in University City, does some pretty amazing things. POP plants fruit trees and other edible plants throughout the city – on vacant lots, in community gardens, at schools, and in other spaces – in low wealth neighborhoods where people lack access to fresh food. POP welcomes volunteers to help with their plantings, one of which is coming up next Monday, October 11th, here in West Philadelphia. Spend a few hours getting your hands dirty and show your support for this great initiative.
