The Meeting Place’s Public Orchard – Planting Day One

The Meeting Place’s Public Orchard – Planting, Day One

Greensboro, North Carolina’s first Public Orchard was planted at the Downtown Greenway’s Meeting Place at the corner of Smith and Prescott Streets, on March 1st & 2nd, 2014. The design and installation was led by Dr. Charlie Headington, Permaculture teacher and practitioner of over 25 years. The orchard consists of 17 fruit trees, 30 shrubs and over 1000 understory plantings. Members and friends of the Greensboro Permaculture Guild assisted in the planting, using only Permaculture practices. The Public Orchard, along with a metal gazebo art installation created by artists from Harries + Heder Collaborative,  and native North Carolina plantings by New Garden Nursery will serve the citizens of Greensboro for years to come.
