Jack London State Historic Park- Historic Orchard Legacy Fruit

August 19, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm

“On August 19, nature and history lovers can learn about the history of an orchard originally planted in 1908-1912, later abandoned and recently restored at Jack London State Historic Park. They can then hike to the newly reclaimed orchard to see – and taste – the rejuvenation that now provides fresh produce for those facing food insecurity.

Deputy Director of Operations Eric Metz will start the day with a presentation on the history and progress of the orchard.

The group will then have the option to take a medium-effort, six-mile (round trip) hike to the orchard for a for a personalized tour of the various areas that have been given a new lease on life to learn more about the unique challenges they had to overcome to revitalize the different areas, such as no access to water. Many of the fruit trees in the orchard now are much older than their average lifespans.

Participants in the August 19 program will learn about the varieties that remain and a special project to reintroduce the heritage peach with the assistance of 18 volunteers, including 13 from the Sonoma Valley Rotary Club.”
