WS Nursery and City Fruit holding cider press event 'Every Apple Has Its Day' Sept. 30
West Seattle Nursery in cooperation with City Fruit is holding a benefit event for that organization called Every Apple Has It's Day! Sunday, September 30, 2012, from 12pm to 4pm
They are billing it as "an Apple Harvest and Cider Press Event to Benefit City Fruit!"
If you are unfamiliar with City Fruit here's their description of what they do:
"Urban fruit trees are a valuable community resource. Often fruit goes unused because people are not sure when to harvest it, how to eat it, or they are put off by damage caused by preventable disease and pests. We are reclaiming the urban orchard, showing people how to harvest and use what they need, and to share the rest with others."
They are urging people with apple trees to "bring a bushel of them over here and City Fruit will press it in their Cider Press and make the most delicious apple cider, just for you!"
City Fruit will have a supply on hand in any case from their latest gleaning.
Georgetown Brewing Company has donated a supply of Growlers (a.k.a. big glass jugs) and and you can take them away with fresh juice for a suggested donation of $5.
Proceeds of all donations will benefit City Fruit.
There will be Gourmet Pies hand crafted by Stumbling Goat Bistro with City Fruit apples and pears will be for sale with all proceeds to benefit City Fruit.
West Seattle Nursery is located at 5275 California Ave s.w.
