An Apple Orchard Is Born!

Orchard and Blue Mountains 4
Our “Blue Mountains” In The Background

We are so grateful to all the donors who helped raise the $8,000 + to fund this orchard and to Joelle Mancuso – CA (MC Trustee) who managed the entire fund raising project every day for over a month.
Who’s The Boss Around Here? Maddy’s Pretty Sure She Is.

A super big thank you to the volunteers who helped our students make this orchard dream a REALITY by planting 65 – apple, pear, and nut trees under budget and with 1/2 a day to spare.
