The urban agriculture movement is picking up steam and TreesNY is getting into the action! Our new FruiTrees New York program is enabling us to plant urban orchards across the Five Boroughs!
East Harlem's Urban Orchards
Trees New York kicked off our FruiTrees New York Program in East Harlem! This was a natural fit as El Barrio is known for it's beautiful community gardens! We had a fun day planting four fruit trees!
Check out the above video that features shots from both community gardens and Trees New York thanking everyone that made it happen!
