Hillcrest Community Orchard


27 Hillcrest Drive, in Hillcrest Park.

About the garden

  • This community orchard consists of fruit trees and shrubs maintained by volunteers.
  • The orchard harvest is available for anyone in the community to harvest fruit but volunteers to help with weeding and general maintenance are always welcome.
  • In addition to growing food, food producing trees and shrubs like the ones in this orchard bring biological diversity to the urban forest, provide environmental benefits and beautify Guelph’s neighbourhoods. They also attract wildlife (birds) and pollinators (butterflies).
