Save Seattle’s Apples: Wallingford Neighborhood Event -
May 3 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Join City Fruit in a series of eventsapple on tree to Save Seattle’s Apples! This spring campaign will engage the community and promote awareness of urban fruit trees, prevent common pests from spreading to nearby trees, keep nutritious food from going to waste, and help to preserve the biological diversity of fruit trees in Seattle.

At these private fruit trees in Wallingford, we’ll first show you how to space apples on the tree so they grow nice and big, then we’ll cover each apple with a paper bag to keep insect pests from getting to the fruit before you do.

We’ll have free paper bags and clips for you to take home so you can make sure your apples are perfectly worm-free next fall.

Email natalie@cityfruit with any questions you have about volunteering or about other ways to get involved.
