Save Seattle’s Apples: Orchard Pest Prevention Party – May 20

Location:  4649 Sunnyside Ave N, Seattle, WA 98103

Join City Fruit and Seattle Cider Company at the Good Shepherd Center Orchard on Friday, May 20th in a collaborative effort to Save Seattle’s Apples! This campaign is meant to build awareness about Seattle’s urban canopy, the proper care and management of apples trees, and provide opportunities for the public to protect apples. In addition to making a healthy apple harvest possible, bagging individual growing apples on a tree prevents common pests from spreading to nearby trees, keeps nutritious food from going to waste, helps to preserve the biological diversity of fruit trees in Seattle, and promotes safe pedestrian conditions.

Come out from 12-4pm to bag individual growing apples and net trees to make a healthy apple harvest possible this coming season!  We are also offering a tasting of City Fruit Cider made by Seattle Cider Company with apples unable to used by local food banks last harvest season.  Bring a water bottle, sturdy work shoes, and come ready to taste some celebratory cider after the work day is done! Adults 21+ wishing to taste cider must bring valid ID.  Sign-up below to volunteer or emailvolunteer@cityfruit.org with any questions.
