Worcester Urban Orchards

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAStaff from the Worcester Tree Initiative (WTI) were on campus today planting four species of  fruit trees (Satsuma and Burbank Plum, Luscious and and D’Anjou Pear) as part of their city wide effort to to cultivate urban orchards. Diverse, edible, and resilient urban greenscapes that promote public health and ecological integrity are a shared priority for Worcester Academy and the WTI. Pictured on the left: Executive Director, Peggy Middaugh, Program Coordinator, Ruth Seward, and Assistant Program Coordinator, Derek Lirange. The Pears and Plums add to the existing edible campus permaculture of apples, peaches, blueberries, black raspberries, mulberries, grapes, and serviceberries.
