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.
Interested in volunteering at this event? Sign up online here now!
City Fruit’s 4th Annual Cider Taste is bigger and better than ever! Join us November 6th at Palace Ballroom for a celebration of our 2014 harvest, including tastes from 10 Pacific Northwest cideries and a City Fruit Marketplace featuring glassybaby, Stumbling Goat jam, cookbooks, and more. All proceeds go directly to benefit the 2015 harvest which provides fresh, local fruit for over 50 food access programs in the Puget Sound area.
Please note: This is a 21 and over event.
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.
