Community Work Day: Fruits of Diversity Community Orchard

Join neighbors and volunteers to help maintain North Portland's Community Orchard, Fruits of Diversity. Discover the magic among the 50+ fruit trees, dozens of fruiting bushes, soil building understory plants, and pollinators that call this place home.

LocationFruits of Diversity Community Orchard at Tamarack Apartments. Google maps has a pin at 4375 N Trenton St, but it's not an actual address. The orchard is back in the Apartment complex, so if you're able, please find street parking on N Alaska or N Trenton streets, it's a 2 minute walk from the main street. We'll have signs up to point the way. If you're looking for ADA parking, you can drive back into the apartments toward the orchard, and we'll find a spot for you. [see map below]

Fruits of Diversity Community Orchard - Planting Day!!

We are partnering with the City of Portland's Bureau of Sustainability to plant a community of new pollinator and native plants at our orchard to improve water quality and support a healthy ecology at North Portland's only community orchard. 

Here's a message from our partners at the city:

Neighborhood to the River is a program of the City of Portland, Bureau of Environmental Services. We are working with neighbors, businesses, community groups, schools and other partners in the New Columbia and Portsmouth Neighborhoods to identify and implement stormwater improvement projects, focusing on green solutions such as planting of trees, native and pollinator-friendly plants and rain gardens. We work to improve neighborhood health and livability, urban wildlife habitats and the quality of water flowing to the Columbia Slough.
