Community Orchard

The Bismarck Community Orchard is located at the Clem Kelley Softball Complex, 517 W. Arbor Avenue. The Community Orchard location was chosen based on public accessibility, proximity to lower income populations within Bismarck, ease of use for educational purposes and supplying food pantries.

The goal of the orchard is to provide fresh produce for the community and the Hunger Free ND Garden Program and to provide educational opportunities for using and preserving fruit.
