FECO’s 10th Annual Cider Fest – en vivo! A COVID-unfriendly event

October 8, 2020

Friends! This year’s Fest will be the best ever. Bring your raincoat, join us Saturday¬† from 2-4pm, and enjoy the lineup:

Saturday, Oct. 10, 2-4pm
6th Ave NE, just south of NE 63rd St
rain or shine
freewayestatescommunityorchard@gmail.com
check calendar for details

Three fabulous young musicians

The best assortment of homemade pie slices, scrumptous homemade granola, raspberry jam, and
invigorating homemade salsa verde

Plants for sale include natives, strawberries, and a few fig and elderberry plants

Miscellaneous art items

The kids will be busy filling out their passports.

OH! and free warm cider from the press!

Quite different from prior years, the Fest is designed as a tour. The anti-Covid team marked a one-way loop route through the orchard and native areas. Distancing and masks are required.

For those who don’t like rain (maybe you just moved to Seattle) we have runners who will greet guests with a handout of all sale items and prices. If lighting strikes your car, you don’t even have to get out!

There are quizzes and interpretive signs along the loop. Everyone will learn something new about gardening.

This is our annual fundraiser. Please bring cash or your checkbook. Volunteers have spent so many hours tidying up. We are very proud of what we have accomplished this year. See you soon!

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.

Sat, Oct 5, 10-12, Work Party
Sat Oct 12, 2-5, Cider Fest!

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!
