Celebrate National Public Lands Day with City Fruit!
Sep 27 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Fall-2012-Cider-Fest-Cider-press-2294

We’re celebrating National Public Lands Day in style this year! Join us on Saturday, September 27 from 10am-2pm at Amy Yee Tennis Center as we harvest the apple trees that so many of our wonderful volunteers helped care for earlier in the year. In addition to harvesting fresh fruit for food banks, meal programs, and homeless shelters, we’ll also be doing general park cleanup and removing invasive plants. As a reward for all of the hard work that YOU, our amazing volunteers, do for City Fruit every day, we will have a cider press on site to press some of the apples, and free tastings for everyone! As an added bonus, bring an empty jug (and a small donation, if you please) to take some home. Individuals, groups, and families are welcome and encouraged to attend! Sign up to volunteer at the bottom of the page here.

Sign up online now.

Cider and Apple Juice Basics + Cider Press Event
Oct 12 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

Cider and apple juice are fast becoming the ‘new’ thing.

The delicateGirls with press 6 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.
