Save Seattle’s Apples: Learning About Fruit Trees in the City

April 15, 2015 6:15am

Ever wonder what happens to the fruit from the numerous fruit trees around the city? According to local organization City Fruit, most of it goes to waste, or owners don’t know how to care for the trees. City Fruit is trying to change this by reclaiming the “urban orchard” all around us through teaching tree owners how to properly harvest the fruit from the trees in the city.

They are hosting their Save Seattle’s Apple’s kick off event on April 19 at local park Linden Orchard. From the organizer:

In an effort to build awareness and strengthen the health of Seattle’s urban fruit canopy, City Fruit is hosting neighborhood-specific pest prevention campaigns. Join us as we unite, then diverge to walk door to door in the Phinney neighborhood educating and assisting homeowners in protecting their apple trees from pests.
