The Awbury Food Forest is a permaculture-style planting creating both habitat and edible resources in a sustainable way. Awbury Stewards of the Food Forest and the Philadelphia Orchard Project work together every third Saturday of the month to maintain all aspects of the Food Forest. Volunteers will get their hands dirty engaging in a variety of tasks including but not limited to weeding/culling, fruit tree pruning, making paths, sheet mulching, and transplanting plants. Come volunteer your time but also learn about unique gardening techniques, woody and perennial edible plants, and their care throughout the season.
