City Fruit – Our Partner

1 Comment

City Fruit has been providing ongoing support for our orchard. When the Holy Cross Church was built, it was on the site of an old farm. The orchard was preserved, but not much was done with it over the years. Through much volunteer work from our congregation and City Fruit volunteers in the past year, the orchard is once again thriving.

City Fruit works neighborhood by neighborhood to help residential tree owners grow healthy fruit, to harvest and use what they can, and to share what they don’t need. City Fruit collaborates with others involved in local food production, climate protection, horticulture, food security and community-building to protect and optimize urban fruit trees. They have classes too!

  1. In addition to City Fruit, Seattle Tree Fruit Society has been a great worker and networker in revitalizing the Holy Cross orchard. Both City Fruit and Seattle Tree Fruit Society provide expertise and events to learn more about growing fruit. Check out their websites listed on this blog. And come join us on Feb. 26 for some hands-on experience in fruit tree pruning and fun in the orchard!! E-mail for more details. Thanks! Janet
