PHILADELPHIA ORCHARDS PROJECT

The Philadelphia Orchard Project (POP) plants orchards in the city of Philadelphia that provide healthy food, green spaces and community food security.

POP works with community-based groups and volunteers to plan and plant orchards filled with useful and edible plants. POP provides the plants, trees, and training. Community organizations own, maintain, and harvest the orchards, expanding community-based food production. Orchards are planted in formerly vacant lots, community gardens Ruby888, schoolyards, and other spaces, almost exclusively in low-wealth neighborhoods where people lack access to fresh fruit.

Please join POP in building community food security for Philadelphia’s future!

POP's Orchard Director, Phil Forsyth, also produces an interesting and informative blog focused on edible landscapes, urban farms
and food growing in Philadelphia. You can find the Phigblog online at http://phigblog.com/.










Pittsburgh Permaculture


PittsburghPermaculture.org showcases the progressive, environmentally sound food production of beautifully developed intentional ecosystems. We hope this site will educate, inspire and motivate those who are interested in exploring the potential of their own backyards.

We provide design services as well as educational programs and events postings. The website contains a running blog of whats going on in and around Pittsburgh, updates on the projects we are working on and hosts a Permaculture Forum for the region.
