Join the City Fruit effort today! Becoming a member is the easiest way to support this year-round effort to put Seattle's fruit to its best and fullest use.
City Fruit's membership program is designed to include everyone - whether you have a fruit tree, care for an orchard, or just enjoy celebrating the neighborhood harvest with a fresh apple. Membership is about coming together to celebrate the wholesome goodness of Seattle-grown fruit. It's about sharing your fruit with neighbors and taking ownership of one of your community's greatest resources: fruit!
Our flat membership rate is $25 per year or you can donate 4 hours of your time volunteering with us to cover your membership dues.
Our membership benefits inlcude:
- Harvest of your fruit tree! Are you a fruit tree owner? Becoming a member means that we will come harvest your tree and distribute the fruit in your neighborhood! You must be a member for us to harvest your tree!

How do I ensure that I get a CSA share?
