GARDEN: Historic Orchard

historic orchard san jose volunteer

The Historic Orchard is a 3.3-acre site, planted in 1994. The orchard contains over 200 fruit trees: cherries, apricots, prunes, apples, and more, that were grown in the Valley over the last century. It is maintained by dedicated volunteers who believe in preserving our community’s history and is a living example of an earlier lifestyle and the economy that once drove the Santa Clara Valley.

Today, with very few orchards remaining, this is a place where adults and children can come to experience a piece of local history. Fruit harvested from the Historic Orchard is donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. Come participate in the monthly workday to help maintain and preserve this special place.

Any volunteers under 16 must come with an adult with this waiver: http://www.grpg.org/Files/VolunteerFormForMinors.pdf
