Save Seattle’s Apples Neighborhood Event
May 9 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

apples5Join City Fruit in Spring 2015 to help Save Seattle’s Apples! In an effort to build awareness and strengthen the health of Seattle’s urban fruit canopy, City Fruit is hosting neighborhood-specific pest prevention campaigns. Join us as we unite, then diverge to walk door to door in the Maple Leaf neighborhood educating and assisting homeowners in protecting their apple trees from pests. We will meet under the shelter at Maple Leaf park (NE 85th and NE Roosevelt Way) to receive supplies and learn proper technique before breaking into groups and helping our neighbors care for their fruit trees! The more apples we can protect, the more fruit we can harvest and share with the community.

This event is easy and fun for all ages! After the work party join us at a local neighborhood pub, grab a drink and some grub and socialize with your neighbors!

If you are interested in volunteering or if you have any questions, contact our Volunteer Coordinator at natalie@cityfruit.org.
