Camp Washington Farm Planting and Pot Up
This is a volunteer planting event. We are planting Apple trees and blackberries on trellis as well as pawpaw and persimmon in a native orchard planting. We will also be up-potting perennial plants to go out to 30 community orchards throughout the region.

Camp Washington Perennial Farm, 3220 Colerain Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45225, USA
About the event
This planting will be located at the Camp Washington Perennial Farm, which is the main resource hub and demonstration site for The Common Orchard Project. This 2 acre farm is located at River City Correction Facility, currently hosts a 40 tree demonstration orchard, nursery space, 30x96 Hoop House, and 500 sq ft skid steer powered composting operation. Even with all this, there is ample non-productive grass space that we would like to transition to even more tree covered and productive space.
We hope to continue to grow out the prodcutive capacity of the farm, project by project, tree by tree.
Come help us from 10:00-1:00 plant more trees and pot up herbs for orchards all over!
Light refreshments provided
