Save Seattle's Apples Orchard Parties

Volunteer to protect our city's orchards by lending a hand to put up the nets! 

Without protection, locally grown apples and pears are at high risk of damage from invasive pests in the PNW. City Fruit has developed and tested a few organic methods of pest prevention that work as a barrier and look a little bit like "hairnets" and keep the bugs out of the fruit!
