LANSING, Mich. (AP) - City officials are expected to discuss Lansing’s revitalization efforts while showcasing a fruit tree orchard on a site where a vacant house and weed-grown lot once stood.

Osband Orchard also is a harvestable perennial garden and open green space in Lansing’s Moores Park neighborhood, one of the city’s blight elimination areas.

The TruGreen TruNeighbor award will be presented during a ceremony Thursday morning to the neighborhood association president.

The lawn care company says it partnered with the city to identify the site as part of its TruNeighbor program, an initiative to help build and beautify communities by increasing access to green spaces.
