Giving Grove Tree Planting

Barry - Platte Community Garden and Orchard is a wonderful partnership between the Platte County Parks and Recreation Department, The Giving Grove, and neighborhood volunteers. With 3 chestnuts, 3 European and 3 Asian pears, 3 apples, 3 bush cherries, and 15' of raspberries, the orchard is a perfect complement to the community garden at the site. The garden and orchard’s goal is to provide a place for children from the neighborhood, local schools, and those visiting the park a chance to experience all the joys of gardening and of harvesting their own healthy food.
