Philly Orchardists,
Take a break from the heat and check out some of our recent POP blog posts, including the results of last year's annual orchard partner survey

New on the POP Blog

POP's blog has remained active, with a number of new posts this spring by POP staff and outside contributors. We are also trying to include write-ups of workshops, like May's herbal salve event, so that even those who can't attend in person are able to learn with us. We hope you'll check out some of the updates below!
