Thanks to the West Seattle Garden Tour and its sponsors for the contribution of $2,110 to City Fruit! 

The West Seattle Garden Tour is an annual fundraising event for local non-profit and educational organizations in the area and surrounding communities.  An all volunteer organization, the tour has donated nearly $500,000 to area non-profits since its inception! 

City Fruit is honored to be among the Tour's 2015 beneficiaries.  Funding from the West Seattle Garden Tour will help support City Fruit's expanded orchard stewardship program into West Seattle. While we currently steward 16 orchards around the city, none are located in West Seattle.  These trees are vitally important to our communities and in 2014, contributed nearly 6,000 pounds of fruit to the emergency food system.

We are looking for fruit trees on public property in West Seattle! Know of any? Please contact us at [email protected]. We will host two neighborhood scouting sessions in early 2016 with support from the Tour, as well as two free educational sessions on pruning fruit trees! 

Mark your calendars for the next West Seattle Garden Tour on July 17, 2016!
