April 23: Bedford-Stuyvesant Apple Tree Giveaway!

Come adopt an apple tree for your school, community garden, house of worship, civic group, hospital, or other public space on Saturday, April 23!

This event, hosted by the Bedford-Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation, is part of the MillionTreesNYC program. We’ll offer 30 apple trees (Newtown Pippins and choice varieties to serve as pollinators and great eating in their own right) for adoption, thanks to a sponsorship from New York Restoration Project.

For more information, CLICK HERE.

Some trees will also go in backyards as a family legacy for years to come. Because backyard trees are mostly going to be alone, please plan to eventually bud graft your tree for pollination, or you won’t get fruit.
