Design for Peaches!

SEEDS worked with six households to design a community garden and orchard in a formerly unused plot of land. While framing the goals, it became clear that the group wanted to communally grow peaches for fresh eating. As a result, SEEDS chose 5 cultivars, which were planted according to ripening time–on the western end of the orchard are the earliest peaches, on the eastern end are the peaches that ripen latest. Management and harvesting is a snap. This picture shows the gorgeous first crop of earliest peaches. One cultivar produced a first crop of over 80 pounds of fruit on just two dwarf trees.
