THE STORY:

There's a vacant lot at a busy intersection that has been sitting empty and lonely for 25 years now, ever since the state tore down the houses to widen the interstate. Why should people have to look at a weedy vacant lot when they could see a place full of flowering fruit and nut trees with children playing and adults learning? We want to plant an orchard: fruit trees, nut trees, blackberries, fresh herbs. All this bounty will be free for the picking. We will have classes for children and adults to learn, not just about where our food comes from, but how we can produce and preserve our own. Beechmont is a very diverse community, home to immigrants from around the world. Many of whom were farmers in their home countries. Many of our other neighbors live in poverty and can't afford fresh fruit and vegetables. What if we could show them how to grow it themselves, give them the opportunity to become more self sufficient? That is our dream.
