Interested in helping with the Meredith Park Orchard?

Planting started in 2014 and species currently include: sweet and sour cherries, plum, pear, apple, persimmon, paw paw, jubjube, mulberry, hascap, currant, strawberry, raspberry, hazelnut, heartnut, pecan and chestnut.

Orchard organizers are seeking passionate individuals, who would like to nurture existing plants, so as to maximize the harvest, and also assist with decisions for future planting. (The entire orchard was recently weeded and mulched, using much of the space on the north and south of the tennis courts.)

Please contact Teresa Rutten at if you or your family is interested in getting involved with sustaining and caring for the orchard.
