The intent of the MG Heritage Apple Orchard on Lopez is to be an educational demonstration orchard which features historic, heritage apple varieties where Master Gardeners provide community education on pruning, disease and pest management, fruit tree propagation and more. The Orchard has two sites near to each other. Site A is on County park property between the History Museum and County Restroom Facilities in Lopez Village. Site B is on History Museum property. The Lopez Historical Society has offered to provide water for the orchard. Master Gardeners grafted 27 trees in spring 2016 and they have been growing in a nursery bed in Anne’s garden. The project is receiving financial support for installation from the Lopez thrift shop, Lopez Island Garden Club, the Master Gardener Foundation and a large San Juan County Lodging Tax grant!
