Kick-off Harvest Celebration Week with City Fruit and the West Seattle Nursery!
Join City Fruit and the West Seattle Nursery as we kick-off Harvest Celebration Week 2014 with a cider press! Our electric press will be on site to turn your apples into delicious juice! If you don’t have apples, City Fruit will have plenty from our latest harvest to share! Bring your own growler or buy one from us. Donations of $5 per gallon are requested. Funds raised during the event will benefit City Fruit’s 2015 Harvest Fund.
Cider and apple juice are fast becoming the ‘new’ thing.
The delicate flavor of cider pairs well with a variety of foods and the abundance of apples and pears makes apple juice and cider natural beverages for the Pacific Northwest. This class covers which apples to use, the basics of pressing juice, making apple juice and moving on to cider.
This class is part of the Second Sunday Series of fruit tree classes, a collaboration between City People’s Garden Store and City Fruit. Call City People’s at 206-324-0737 to register.
After the class, between 12noon and 2pm, check out City Fruit’s cider press. Bring your apple harvest and growlers and make cider! If you don’t have apples, City Fruit will have plenty from our latest harvest. Bring your kids so they can help make cider and see for themselves where their apple juice comes from.
City Fruit and Volunteers of America Western Washington are teaming up once again for the 3rd Annual Cider Press and Food Drive! Held in conjunction with both Food Day and PhinneyWood’s Safe Trick or Treat, this event collects food and money to feed families in our community throughout the holiday season. All proceeds benefit the VOAWW Greenwood Food Bank.
In addition to the Food Bank’s position as a stop along the Safe Trick or Treat route, donation stations will be located along Greenwood Avenue to make donating even easier. Participants who bring a bag of food or a $10 donation will receive a growler of fresh-pressed apple cider courtesy of City Fruit. Tours of the food bank will be available and there will be treats and Halloween activities for young trick-or-treaters.
