Planted in the median on Callaway Avenue, mature apple trees are a point of pride for the community. Every year, residents from Callaway-Garrison and Ashburton gather in the Fall to celebrate the harvest, pick apples and enjoy music and each other.
Designed to replicate a historic orchard planted by the Carroll family, the Carroll Park Orchard is a wonderful community asset in the Pigtown Neighborhood. Over 60 mature fruit trees are currently being rehabilitated to bring them back into production. The orchard includes apples, plums, and others.
Jonah House members maintain the grounds of St. Peter’s Cemetery in West Baltimore. On the property, several mature fruit trees produce fruit to support their food pantry. In addition to fruit trees, community members raise chickens, grow vegetables, and are active in the community.
