August Orchard Work Days

POP has updated its safety guidelines for in-person events, and we still strongly encourage pre-registration but mask use is no longer required outdoors for fully vaccinated people. At most events, POP and volunteers will help partners complete tasks in the monthly orchard task list. See all available events on the POP Events Page!
