SEATTLE PARKS AND RECREATION ANNOUNCES ADDITIONAL FUNDING FOR MORGAN JUNCTION Seattle Parks and Recreation has identified $90,000 from the Pro Parks Levy Neighborhood Development Projects contingency fund to complete development of Morgan Junction Park. This project develops the property on California Avenue SW, north of SW Eddy St., into a park. The design incorporates ideas and suggestions made by community members at meetings held in the planning process for this space. The new park provides for community gathering space and family activities. The design features a blend of hardscape, compacted crushed stone, grass, low landscaped edges, trees, and seating. Approved by Seattle voters in 2000, the $198.2 million Pro Parks Levy funds more than 100 projects throughout the City over eight years. Projects include improvements to athletic fields, playgrounds, trails and community centers and parks. Funding also increases green spaces, supports Zoo programs and enhances park maintenance. For more information, please call Virginia Hassinger, Project Planner, at 206 233-7936; e-mail her at Virgina.hassinger.seattle.gov, or visit the website at http://www.cityofseattle.net/parks/proparks/Projects/morgan.htm.

Community Harvest of Southwest Seattle: 2008 Fruit Tree Harvest

Community Harvest of Southwest Seattle is a new organization that increases availability of urban fruits and vegetables for all neighbors in West Seattle and White Center. We believe that everyone deserves access to the foods that promote a healthy life.

We are gearing up for the 2008 Fruit Tree Harvest. We harvest residential fruit trees and donate the fruit to the local food banks, senior center and schools.

We are always looking for more volunteers to pick fruit & more trees to harvest!

Harvesting Info:

  • The harvest season begins in mid July and ends in late September.
  • There will be 2 regularly scheduled picking times each week - one on a weekday evening and one on a weekend day (with additional times as needed.)
  • Volunteers can come for 2 hours or stay for up to 4 hours.
  • Volunteers are needed for picking (ladder or ground), delivering fruit, and scouting trees.
  • Harvesting is typically done by a group of 2-5 people working together.
  • Currently we focus on pesticide free apple, pear, and plum trees. Most of the trees we pick are plums.
  • We offer two orientation sessions for all harvest volunteers prior to picking: Tuesday, July 15 or Monday and August 4 7:00-8:00pm at the Delridge Library.

If you are interested in being a volunteer harvester or you have a tree that you would like harvested, please go to our website www.gleanit.org and fill out the online form.
