Fruits of Diversity Community Orchard — North Portland

Contact: vgardens@janusyouth.org

 

Fruits of Diversity Community Orchard (FOD) in North Portland was created by and for the community with the goal to provide access to fresh fruit to residents of the Tamarack Apartments, New Columbia, and other North Portland community members while also cultivating community leaders and educational opportunities to learn about fruit production. Village Gardens and Portland Fruit Tree Project collaboratively manage the project with support from Home Forward and East Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District.

The orchard is home to over 48 fruit trees, dozens of edible shrubs, medicinal and culinary herbs, native plants for pollinators, and so much more. Each year, the orchard grows in maturity and productivity.
