Who We Are

Creating a patch of Eden in every neighborhood

The Baltimore Orchard Project is dedicated to bringing fresh fruit and productive fruit trees to neighborhoods throughout Baltimore and to creating a greener, healthier, resilient and enchanting community as we go.

We work to grow, glean and give away urban fruit, neighbor to neighbor, to those who want and those who need.

We work with schools, congregations, neighborhoods and individuals to turn vacant, wasted or under-used swatches of land into productive sources of food, neighborhood gathering places, and lively ecosystems that keep our communities and ourselves healthy.

We'd love to work with you. 

Get Involved.
