Give the Fruit Trees Some Love!
Help us take care of the public fruit tree orchard around the Amy Yee Tennis Center in the Mount Baker neighborhood of Seattle. We’ll be spreading wood chips around the apple trees, removing Scotch Broom (experience the Weed Wrench!) and planting some apple and crabapple trees. Gloves, tools, hot drinks, and snacks will be provided. Wear clothing and shoes suitable for rain showers, dirt, and possible sloped ground.
The more we care for the trees, the tastier their fruit will be in the fall. We use only organic methods, no chemical pesticides or herbicides.
If you drive, please don’t park in the main Amy Yee parking lot, as it is typically full of tennis players. Drive east on Walker past the parking lot – look for the sandwich board directing you to volunteer parking.
Oh – and we’ll be there rain or shine!
