Bloomington, IN (January 26, 2012)- As one of the only projects of its kind in the nation, the Bloomington Community Orchard is on the forefront of sustainable living and community building. Incredible, dedicated volunteers have worked thousands of hours to carry the Orchard from its first community meeting in February 2010, through two major grants and two community-wide planting days, and onward to harvesting and maintaining a place they love.
The Orchard will contribute to Bloomington’s food security, inspire joyful community engagement, and educate citizens while making sustainability delicious. Our publicly owned Orchard operates in partnership with the Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department. The Orchard is maintained entirely by volunteers and the harvest is available to everyone in the community.
