Orchard Stewards

What is the Orchard Stewards Program?

The Baltimore Orchard Project has planted almost 100 orchards in the city composed of over 1,000 fruit and nut trees. To sustain this fruit and nut system, we need people to cultivate orchards and cultivate communities. Orchards need some love and care, and we need community members to spread the knowledge of stewardship to empower neighbors to sustain their orchards.

As a Steward you will learn the tips and tricks of caring for an orchard, everything from pruning to building an Orchard House. With your help, a community orchard can ensure its longevity as a neighborhood gem.

OSP is a series of 12 workshops. We meet the second Saturday of each month for an orchard workshop. You will work with a Community Orchard, and use your new skills to help manage their fruit trees. We ask that you dedicate at least 2 hours a month to your orchard outside of the workshops.
