Seattle remains one of the few urban environments boasting an extensive variety of historic orchards and fruit trees. Today, hundreds of heirloom varieties continue to inspire homeowners, orchardists, community volunteers, and cidermakers.
On Sunday, October 4, visit Seattle's historic orchards throughout the city. Each orchard is planning special activities, including cider pressings, historical tours, and more! Your self-guided tour will take you throughout Seattle's neighborhoods to a hidden orchard, a former homestead, and other beautiful community sites.
Learn more about maintaining fruit trees in the Pacific Northwest or just enjoy the fall harvest season!
