Community Garden Plants Orchard at Brook Run Park

After months of online campaigning, trees arrived and were being planted Friday by volunteers of the community garden.

It's a reality.

From an online contest won by the Dunwooody Community Garden to a real-deal fruit orchard that hopefully will produce fruit for decades.

A now-planted apple - an Arkansas Black - will be among 26 trees surrounding the community garden in Brook Run Park. (It's the tree in the photo.)

The planting was part of a ceremony that drew more than 50 people - including city officials who helped make it happen.

But this wasn't just a golden shovel event, as you can see by the photo. After the pomp and circumstance, the trees were going to be planted with the help of an arborist.

Stay tuned for Patch for a complete story on the new orchard.
