Learn how to plant, grow and harvest your own fruit this week at Manayunk’s Tiny Terra Ferma, a garden supply shop and landscape design studio. The evening of urban gardening knowledge is perfectly paired with pies full of local produce, live music and beer.
The night’s event, Pies for POP, benefits the Philadelphia Orchard Project (POP), an initiative that has brought 34 orchards to Philadelphia and plans to bring even more fruit-bearing orchards to the city.
From kiwis to apples, the Philadelphia Orchard Project has brought an assortment of locally grown fruit to the city. The event kicks off a 90-day Give to Benefit fundraiser.
Learn tips and tricks from the good people at the Philadelphia Orchard Project who will instruct attendees on how to grow produce in a city setting.
Indulge in sweet, local fruit as Sweet Elizabeth’s Cakes prepares tasty pies containing fruit from Three Springs Fruit Farm (and serves up some savory pies, too!).
Yards Brewing Company will provide refreshing brews on this summer evening. Yum.
Live music and urban orchard art installations throughout Tiny Terra Ferma round out the evening.
