Becoming a member is the easiest way to support City Fruit’s year-round effort to put Seattle’s fruit to its best and fullest use. Your membership helps ensure that we can continue to expand our harvest work so that everyone in our city shares in the value of fruit.

City Fruit’s membership program is designed to include EVERYONE – whether you have a fruit tree, like to volunteer and help care for the fruit trees, or just enjoy celebrating the neighborhood harvest with a fresh apple. You are all part of our fruit community!

 

Annual membership fee: $25 or four volunteer hours

 

City Fruit members make the Great Seattle Fruit Harvest possible. 

Harvesting fruit from hundreds of households and distributing it to the community partners across the city day in, day out is not only a huge undertaking but it is also an expensive operation. Running an efficient harvest operation requires well-designed and maintained infrastructure, a team of harvesters, and proper equipment and vehicles. In fact, an average harvest costs over $180 and 3.5 hours of harvester/staff time

While grants and income from fruit sales help supplement, our harvest program is primarily funded membership fees and small donations from individuals like YOU. 

Your membership fee will directly help: 

  • Make sure more fruit grown in our city is consumed instead of going to waste. 
  • Make sure more community members, especially those who are experiencing hunger, get to enjoy our fruit. 
  • Create more opportunities for our neighbors to experience our orchards and fruit.
