Placeholder faculty image
Students teamed up with the Office of Sustainability on April 22, Earth Day, to plant a variety of fruit trees in a new area of Skidmore’s Community Garden, the Orchard.

Supporting ongoing efforts to create biodiversity on campus and provide a mix of fruits, students and staff of the Community Garden worked with a local nursery to hand-select each tree. The trees will soon bear plums, apricots, peaches and three varieties of apples.
