June 4, 2016 Work Party

We had a terrific work party on June 4th, with a large group of volunteers, including a return visit from a team who works at the Wells Fargo Seattle Main branch. A big thank you to everyone.

Volunteers put foot socks and paper bags on the growing apples,

thinned the apples so the remaining ones will grow bigger, and tented three trees.

We also removed some diseased trees and started a solarization project to hopefully prevent the trees which will be planted later from getting Specific Apple Replant Disease (SARD). For more information on this, check out this link.
