Growing High Point first broke down on the Urban Orchard project after months of planning. We had the lot tilled so that we could put weed cloth down to prepare for tree planting early 2022.

Final plans are made as the area is staked off and the area is checked for power and waterlines. 

2021-

Planning for the urban orchard starts- an easily accessible area filled with fruit trees that the community can come and pick from. 

The location is decided on by Southside Rec Center off the greenway and efforts start to turn the idea into the reality as the City of High Point Parks and Rec partners with us through their block grant.
