Fall Means Festival!

September 28, 2019

Fall is here! On Saturday, October 12th we will be hosting our 9th annual Cider Fest from 2:00-5:00pm. We invite everyone to visit the orchard and enjoy a free cup of freshly pressed hot apple cider.

You’ll have the opportunity to watch the cider making process and even take a turn at cranking the press. Kids love taking part in the process and tasting the end product.

In addition to cider making, we will have live music, kid’s activities from the Pacific Science Center and a Garden Hotline horticulturist, ready to answer your gardening questions.

Slices of scrumptious homemade pie will be available for a donation.Take home some salsa verde, made with orchard-grown tomatillos and mild peppers.

It’s a great time to come see all of the work we’ve been doing. In the last year, we’ve added additional garden beds to grow food for local food banks. We’ve also continued to explore ways to collect and conserve water and grow food more sustainably.

We hope to see you at the event! If you’re interested in volunteering at the event, please click this SignUp Genius link or contact us at freewayestatescommunityorchard@gmail.com.

We’re also looking for volunteers to help us spruce up the orchard on Saturday, October 5th from 10am-12pm. All help is appreciated!
