Show your Support: Become a Valued Member

Beautiful Seattle apples

 

City Fruit has always been community-driven and focused, and a large part of our work has been possible only because of invested community members like you.

Since our beginning, our Membership Program has been a way for supporters to show their love and support of our mission while also becoming part of a collective able to access special perks of membership. 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! 

As a City Fruit member you get to take advantage of these member benefits, which align with City Fruit's core values:

  • Sharing Fruit: Fruit for All CSA    City Fruit members have the opportunity to sign up to get free fruit at our Fruit-for-All farmstand pop-ups across Seattle! Last year, our CSA included a variety of fresh, organic, hyper-local fruit that was freshly picked in our own neighborhoods. This year, we hope to add dried apples as well!
  • Celebrating Fruit: Cider Apples     For those interested in making pressed cider and interested in diverting more fruit from waste, you can request cider apples at $.20 a pound (a minimum 3 weeks notice required; while supplies last). Members can also rent our cider press at a discount.
  • Building Community: City Fruit events     During the months of September-October, we plan to host members-only events that may include tours of an urban orchard, cider pressing, and jam making (in 2021, we anticipate these small events will be outdoors and social distance measures taken).
  • Collaborating: Partner Discounts      Enjoy discounts from our partner businesses. Discounts and promotions are emailed out to our members seasonally.
  • Recognition in City Fruit's Annual Report 

Membership benefits are extended to all recurring donors who commit to a monthly contribution of $5 or more.
