The 2015 Valentine’s Day work party took out a lot of wood out!  For those of you with a bunny or who like to cook with fruit wood we left a bunch of apple trimmings down down by the trail.

Fran took some pictures at the work party, pictures below.

Last year on Sept. 14th we had a successful Festival of Fruit.   See link to the side or link below to see what was planned…..that is what we did.

DIRECTIONS

Piper’s Orchard in Carkeek Park, Seattle, WA, a historic fruit orchard, may be reached from Carkeek Park’s lower meadow parking lot ( Seattle Park’s directions to Carkeek here ), by walking up along Piper’s Creek.  There’s also a new trail leading down from the park entrance (near the Environmental Learning Center).  An alternative way to reach the orchard is by following the ravine from the park’s small southerly McAbee entrance.  The McAbee parking lot and trailhead are behind the QFC from Holman Road, off of NW 100th Pl. at 6th Ave. NW.

TO-DOs:

Play “spot the orchard” with this google map flagging the McAbee Entrance: open the link then zoom in and follow from the small parking lot down into the ravine and around by Piper’s Creek to spy the fruit and nut trees laid out in a grid.
