Event Details

Gathering the Fruits of Orchard Rehabilitation 

Bring your ideas to a discussion about how to shape the 2024 apricot harvest to be more inclusive and equitable while cultivating respect for trees and pickers. Orchard Commons Committee Chair Jane Packard will lead this discussion about the Los Altos Heritage Orchard Historical Landmark.

About the Program
A short presentation will review why the previous orchardists have had crop rights and explore reasons why we might want to reconsider this approach in the future. We will consider how a community resource needs to be managed carefully so that many folks share in the responsibilities as well as the benefits.

We want to hear about your experiences and suggestions. Have you participated in pick-n-pay fruit harvesting at local orchards? What are the benefits? Do you have any misgivings? What might be some innovative approaches to share with care?

Registration is required.
