City Fruit is a Seattle non profit that promotes the cultivation of urban fruit to build strong
communities. They saw the abundance of fruit trees in the city, and how little of the fruit was consumed. They have done great work to solve that problem. Last year they harvested 34,000 pounds of fruit with 19,000 of it going meal programs and food banks. One tree in Wallyhood’s own Meridian Park generated 490 pounds of fruit.
To do that great work, they need volunteers. There are a few upcoming events in the neighborhood where you can give a little time and learn a little more about our urban fruit trees:
They request RSVPs for events at the above links.
