A patchwork of community orchards is being woven across the City of Brunswick in the form of citrus groves. Planted in high pedestrian traffic areas across the City, when mature, the resulting citrus fruit are free for passersby to pick and enjoy. In 2018 the original grove was planted near the Howard Coffin Park walking track with subsequent orchard installations thereafter.
Brunswick Community Orchards have been funded via:
Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation Community Orchards Grant
BB&T now Truist / Lighthouse giving program
Keep America Beautiful / UPS tree planting grant
Georgia Tree Council ReLeaf Grant
A true community partnership, KGIB coordinates the effort and secures funding, Coastal Greenery sources, plants and fertilizes the trees, and the City of Brunswick provides the land and tree watering. Additional project partners have included the Brunswick Downtown Development Authority, Forward Brunswick and the Golden Isles Fund for Trees. Future orchard expansion is funding dependent.
