Jump into Spring by purchasing plants from the annual Bradner Gardens Spring Plant Sale!
Join City Fruit in a series of work party events to Save Seattle’s Apples! This spring campaign is meant to engage the community and promote awareness of the urban fruit trees, prevent common pests from spreading to nearby trees, keeping nutritious food from going to waste, and helping to preserve the biological diversity of fruit trees in Seattle.
We need volunteers and volunteer groups to help us place protective bags over the young apples in our orchard. These bags will keep out pests that like to eat the growing fruit. The more apples we can protect, the more fruit we can harvest and share with the community.
Come out and see the oldest orchard in Seattle!
Sign-up here to volunteer and check out all of our other upcoming events.
Wear sturdy shoes and clothes to work in. Snacks, drinks and gloves will be provided. Email natalie@cityfruit with any questions you have about volunteering or about other ways to get involved.
