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.

Pruning Apples (and Pears) and Espalier Basics
Nov 9 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Apple and pears produce fruit on older wood and encouraging spur development produces more fruit. Espalier trees are great for spur production. The class covers the basics of apple/pear tree pruning and discusses how to develop an espalier tree. This workshop is the last in a series of co-sponsored classes with City People’s Garden Store.  Call City People’s at 206-324-0737 to register.

The class will be taught by Ingela Wanerstrand.
