Fruit trees are a wonderful addition to our urban landscapes because they provide food, shade and an opportunity to connect with the natural world. Soil Born Farms is helping increase our urban fruit tree canopy by opening up our fruit tree nursery to the community to purchase fruit trees for their homes. Trees and tree care information are available on Wednesdays from 9am to 1pm and on Saturdays at our Farmstand from 9am to 1pm. Varieties include apple, apricot, peach, pluot, plum, nectarine, pear, fig persimmon and pomegranate. Tree pricing ranges from $20 to $45. We have 500 healthy fruit trees ready for a new home in your garden.
