Community Orchard at Owens Field Park

Rosewood is home to a fruit orchard near the track at Owens Field Park. In 2011, the Corporation for Economic Opportunity (CEO) was awarded a grant for a community orchard from Edy’s Fruit Bars and the Tree Planting Foundation. Owens Field Park in Rosewood was chosen as the location to plant the orchard. We owe a big thank you to CEO and Edy’s, everyone who voted for Columbia to win, and the volunteers who helped plant the orchard!
