Promoting and preserving urban fruit to nourish people, build community, and protect the environment.
Since 2008, City Fruit has stewarded and harvested fruit from public and private trees across Seattle to help make our food system more sustainable and just.
What We Do
Harvest and Distribution
Fruit Tree Stewardship
Education and Outreach
The heart of City Fruit is our harvest season, when we pick approximately 40,000 pounds of fruit annually to share with our community through food banks, meal programs, and farmer’s markets.
We provide year-round tree care to fruit trees on private and public lands to ensure a bountiful harvest season. These services include pruning, mulching, integrated pest management, planting, and more.
We teach the next generation of orchardists and food justice champions through programs and workshops from elementary youth to seniors. Our programs work afterschool, through the seasons, and on weekends.
