Join us for a bicycle ride to visit some of Philadelphia’s best orchards, and support the Philly Orchard Project on Orchard Day, Saturday, October 26, our annual event to celebrate our accomplishments by joining with community sponsors to educate about food justice and how to grow healthy and delicious fruit in our neighborhoods.
The ride will visit several orchards on both sides of the Schuylkill River, including a ride over the historic Strawberry Mansion bridge, stopping by the Woodford Mansion apple festival and concluding at the Overbrook orchard where a full day of activities are planned. The ride will cover about 20 miles, with five stops.
Sign up now on eventbrite to participate in the first bicycle tour of Philadelphia Orchard Project orchards, and join Orchard Day celebrations and events at each stop. The ride fee of $20 goes entirely to support the work of the Philadelphia Orchard Project. Just click on this link.
If you would like to volunteer to help with the ride, contact Jerry Silberman.
