Fruit Tree Orchard

testPhoto Right: 

Adjacent to the Potawot Community Food Garden is a fruit tree orchard featuring over sixty fruit varieties including apples, peaches, pears, cherries, Asian pears, plums, and figs. When the fruit is ripe it is made available to the community at the bi-weekly produce stand between the months of June and October. The orchards promote healthy eating and are delicious while taking a walk on the Ku’ wah-dah-wilth trails.

The orchards are managed without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers. There are a number of legume (nitrogen fixing) plants growing in the understory of the orchards to contribute nitrogen to the trees. There are also a number of perennial plants around the orchard that attract beneficial insects that help control pests on the fruit trees.
