The Orchard

Located adjacent to the new main campus entrance, the Orchard is a welcoming natural feature that will host a variety of fruit trees, attract pollinators and birds, and provide residents with a harvest of seasonal fruits including apples, pears, and peaches. On the west side of the new building will be a large, relatively flat open space planted with orchard tree species. Designed as a new kind of “campus green,” this space will allow for gathering and use as a shade lawn, but its plants will all be fruit- or nut-bearing, making it a critical component of the agricultural landscape at the Divinity School. It will feel both new and familiar at the same time.

Pathway through The Orchard from Prospect Street with Sterling Divinity Quadrangle on the right.
