Kingsessing Orchard


Grow Philly's goal at Kingsessing Orchard is to turn a vacant lot into a sustainable, raised-bed orchard that yields high-quality, low-cost produce for the community.

The Kingsessing Orchard grows: 

  • peaches
  • chestnuts
  • hazelnuts
  • figs
  • pears
  • blueberries
  • cherries
  • blackberries
  • asparagus
  • strawberries
  • flowers

...using a sustainable water system. Plants are chosen to be long-living and resistant to climate change. The orchard will host seasonal farmers markets.
