Hello, Slow Food Friends!
In 2016, we’ve increased our community service participation. We have an Fall-themed volunteer activity in conjunction with City Fruit in late September for those interested in participating! Details:
Saturday, September 24, 2016, from 10AM-2PM: Volunteer at City Fruit’s Fall Festival ofFruit at Piper’s Orchard in Carkeek Park from either 10-1PM or 10-2PM. City Fruit would like about 5 Slow Food Seattle volunteers to help operate the cider press and aid in the pie contest. The Festival of Fruit is going on from 10am-2pm that day and is an annualcelebration of the fruit in the park. There will be live music, pie, and apple tastings. Everyone would receive some training on the cider press and other event details, if interested.
City Fruit’s “mission is to promote the cultivation of urban fruit in order to nourish people, build community, and protect the climate.” To learn more, visit their site here:https://www.cityfruit.org/about-us
