We have also planted some traditional orchards on four lots near the main orchard. In these lots, more traditional fruit trees were installed, including cherry, plum, apple, pear, and peach trees. Many of these areas have poor soils from having been demolition sites. We are working with environmental science interns from Oakland University to design companion plantings, including many deep-rooted plants to help these trees break up the heavy clay soils and facilitate the growth of the fruit trees.
