College of Staten Island Orchard!

College of Staten Island 2800 Victory Blvd, Staten Island, New York, Stati Uniti
Google+

CUNY College of Staten Island has invited Gotham Orchard to plant the first phase of its public orchard! We'll plant 50 Newtown Pippins and saplings grafted from the ancestral apple forests of Kazakhstan!

The Newtown Pippin (www.newtownpippin.org) is the historic apple of NYC and is still a gourmet favorite. Malus Sieversii (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malus_sieversii) is the ancestral apple, which evolved on the lower slopes of the Tian Shan ("Celestial Mountains") on Kazakhstan's border with China. Our varieties of Malus Sieversii were chosen by USDA and Cornell University researchers for taste, size, and natural disease resistance.

Please support this wonderful project by donating to Gotham Orchards through Trees NY (our fiscal agent, details below) or volunteer!

VOLUNTEER INFORMATION

You needn't volunteer for the whole afternoon. We'll need to mark planting spots, dig holes, sort tree varieties, soak roots, plant, add compost, form tree wells, water, etc. There will be plenty to do! We also need volunteers to map the orchard.

If you have fruit tree planting experience, please come guide other volunteers! Hats, gloves, water, sunblock, snacks, aspirin or substitute, clothing change, and other commonsense outdoor activity items are recommended.
