City Fruit Cider Taste Fundraiser is November 12

5th Annual Cider Taste Fundraiser benefiting the 2016 harvest.

City Fruit is hosting their annual Cider Taste Fundraiser on Thursday, November 12th. City Fruit is a Seattle non-profit that promotes the cultivation of urban fruit to nourish people, build community, and protect the climate. Urban fruit trees are all over Seattle, but the fruit often goes unused because people don’t know when to harvest or how to use it. City Fruit is reclaiming the “urban orchard” by showing people how to harvest what they need and to share the rest with others.
