Urban Foraging

Volunteers and city officials planted trees in Goshen Monday morning, it's the beginnings of the city’s new public orchard.

Tiny trees, little more than sticks, rise out of donuts of mulch at Abshire Park in Goshen. It’s the beginnings of an Orchard that will be tended, and harvested by the public. 

The project is the brainchild of Goshen resident Patrick Coonan. It’s funded by a $30,000 grant provided by Enterprise through the Arbor Day Foundation.
