Chicagoist Picks CROP


A nice Chicagoist write-up about Chicago Rarities Orchard Project.

The Chicago Rarities Orchard Project (CROP) has been in the works for five years, as board members worked with the City of Chicago and the nonprofit organization NeighborSpace to secure land for an orchard.

“Everyone has been very supportive and it’s exciting to see this project moving forward, but it does take time,” says CROP founder Dave Snyder. “Nobody goes into orchards, because they lack the patience.”
