Loco for Loquats Pick

  • Glen Green Street

We're loco for loquats! And these delicate fruits are ripening quickly in this warm April sun. We're predicting they'll be at their peak at the end of April, so let's get together and harvest this crop before it's too late. 

Please join us for a Loquat Pick on Saturday, April 29! We'll be harvesting neighborhood loquats, cleaning and processing them, and turning a portion into salsa. The majority of the harvest will be donated to A Place Called Home. Join us for our loquat harvest and you'll be helping to improve our LA community.

We'll need some hands to help pick the fruit, and A LOT of hands to process it. The loquat, commonly called Japanese plum, is a very delicate, juicy, yellow-gold fruit, that typically contains 2 or 3 large brown seeds. The skin is thin and needs to be handled with care, thus making the cleaning process a bit slower. The pay off is big, however, and once you taste a tree-ripened loquat you'll realize it's worth the effort. 

Want to be on a picking crew? Wear long sleeves and sunscreen, and bring pruners, water and gloves. Want to be a kitchenista? Please bring rubber gloves and a non-precious dishtowel. Want to try your hand at both? That's great! We'll all be meeting at 2556 Glen Green Street (midway up the cul-de-sac) at 9am. We can't wait to see you!

If you must drive, please park on Beachwood Drive, as parking is very limited on Glen Green.

Citrus-A-Go-Go! February Pick-n-Kitchen

  • Glen Green Street

Our first big 2017 Hollywood Orchard harvest event is this Saturday, and we know you don't want to miss the fun. Our Citrus-A-Go-Go Pick-n-Kitchen is the perfect example of our mission in action: we'll harvest fruit from trees in our neighborhood and collectively prepare part of the haul in our pop-up kitchen. The majority of the harvest is donated to A Place Called Home, an incredible community center in South Central LA. Last year we donated over a ton of fruit! Our Pick-n-Kitchen event is a great opportunity to engage with neighbors and give back to our community. And did we mention it's SUPER FUN?!
 
Friends of the Orchard, Chefs Minh Phan and Ernest Miller, are working with us to create unique and delicious recipes to make with some of the citrus we pick. This year we're making lemon salt, lemon sugar, and lemon-infused olive oil. Everyone that participates will be able to bring home one of these items as well as some fresh fruit juice.
 
Please join us for Ctirus-A-Go-Go! Meet us on Saturday at 9am at (halfway up the cul-de-sac on the right-hand side). If you must drive, please park on Beachwood Drive. We look forward to seeing you!

Kitchen Crew, please bring: pairing knife, vegetable peeler, zester, cutting board, dish towel, and a jar to take juice home.

On Sunday, December 11th, we'll be focusing on the other trees that are spread across Beachwood Canyon, including those in our Mini Grove. We'll need a lot of hands on deck for this work, and we really hope you can join us. The teamwork and community effort that goes into planting new drought-tolerant trees in our neighborhood each Spring always makes for a fulfilling day, but we can't forget that making sure they stay healthy is our greater responsibility. Join us for both days, or just one. But, please, join us. Now let's get out there and care for our trees.

Cheremoya Elementary School Field Trip

Each Spring, Hollywood Orchard and a class of 6th graders go on a fruit hunting expedition. Together, we discover fruiting trees in the Beachwood Canyon neighborhood, discuss their role in our environment, and record their beauty in our guidebooks.

We pick fresh fruit, eat a healthy lunch, participate in food experiments with local chefs, and learn about California's rich natural history. It's a day we'll never forget.

This year's will take place on Wednesday, May 11 from 8AM-2PM. In order to participate, you must be available during that entire time. If you're interested in volunteering, please let us know.

Farmers' Circle – Don't Fear the Pruner – Tree Pruning Workshop with Alex Silber of Papaya Tree Nursery

  • Hollywood Orchard Mini Grove

Let’s face it, pruning is scary!  We all know we should be out there pruning our dang fruit trees. But most of us aren’t exactly sure how or when. So we’ll grab the shears and take a few tentative snips. But the whole time we’re terrified of doing more harm than good, right?

Well, fear not!

Orchard favorite Alex Silber of Papaya Tree Nursery is coming by to give us a hands-on demonstration of how to prune with confidence. We’ll start at our new Hollywood Orchard Mini Grove, where this past spring we planted seven beautiful specimens of fruit trees that have done some serious growing! Alex will explain his pruning strategy, and since year’s end is pretty great timing, he’ll take us through some actual pruning of our young saplings, and even walk us up the hill to tackle some more established trees!

Wear some good hiking shoes, pack a water bottle and notepad, and bring your pruning questions. This is gonna get interesting!

If you must drive, please park on Beachwood Drive. We'll be meeting at the end of Glen Green Street. The street veers to the left and ends in a separate cul-de-sac where we started our mini grove. Let's gather there!

Fall Tree Walk

Over 20 varieties of trees have been planted through our Diggin' In Project in the past two years, and Fall is the perfect time to check on them. We're looking for some volunteers to make the journey with us. Some of the terrain is challenging, and all volunteers are encouraged to wear comfortable walking shoes and bring water, gloves, and walking sticks. We'll be hiking the ridgeline and making sure our newest trees are receiving enough water and food and are properly protected from the hungry deer in the area. We'll meet in the cul-de-sac end of Glen Green at 9:00 am (the part of the street that veers to the left and ends near the mini grove) and try to finish up around 11:00 am -- before the heat sets in. Hanging out with neighbors, exploring the area, and checking up on our newest trees? What a perfect way to start your weekend. We hope to see you there!
