New this year is the grand opening of the Community Orchard of West Seattle. This hardworking group has transformed a previously unused space into a permaculture inspired orchard for local food security and community education.
If you are curious about edible gardening, need inspiration or just like nosin’ around in people’s gardens (and let’s be honest… who doesn’t?) come!
The event is partnered with Seattle Tilth’s Chicken Coop Tour (happening the same day) so that you can see all the area’s edible gardens and chicken coops that on tour that day. Great if you want to stay in the area! You won’t regret staying in the area as you will see a a great variety of edible landscaping and urban livestock. Up for a bike ride around the peninsula anyone?
Tickets are available for $5 members, $8 non members or $12 for both edible gardens and coops. You can get tickets day of at the Community Orchard (South Seattle Community College North Entrance, 6000 16th Ave SW, Seattle WA) or online.
