The People’s Garden Orchard offers free fruit to gardeners and Shawnee neighborhood residents.

The orchard is located at 536 N 44th St at the Shawnee People’s Garden, and was planted in 2011 when the garden was started by area residents. Inside the orchard are oriental and other types of pear, peaches, plums, and apples trees, as well as blueberry and blackberry bushes. All community members are welcome to come enjoy the fresh fruit, as the orchard is on the north side of the property, off of Northwestern Parkway. The garden and orchard also have a “Free Little Library” and seating area.

If you’re interested in volunteering in the orchard or setting up a group service day, please contact
