Join City Fruit and Save Seattle’s Apples

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.

From noon – 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 16, City Fruit needs volunteers and volunteer groups to help place protective bags over the young apples growing along the Burke-Gilman Trail. These bags will keep out pests that like to eat the growing fruit. The more apples that can be protected, the more fruit that can be harvested and shared with the community.

Meet on the Burke-Gilman Trail in Wallingford. For more information, go here.
