Join your neighbors and colleagues and fellow urban farmers every Thursday, 5–7 pm, starting March 13, at the Community Orchard of West Seattle.

Help plant, tend, weed and harvest green leafy crops, berries, fruiting trees and other plants during this growing season at our huge urban garden and orchard! It’s time to prune trees and berry bushes, and develop ideal individual soil preparations for each crop to be planted.

Questions on urban gardening, permaculture techniques, or your own problem plants are our specialty and are more than welcome! We hope to see you there! The Community Orchard of West Seattle is located at the east end of the parking lot adjacent to the Horticulture Center, north end of the campus at South Seattle Community College.

What is Community Orchard of West Seattle?

Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) provides a home-scale model that demonstrates how much food can be grown on a city-sized lot. Our produce goes to our volunteers, neighbors and local food security programs while we provide a venue for public agricultural education and community gathering. Using permaculture and organic growing principles, COWS demonstrates several different kinds of non-standard orchard techniques and garden configurations – most of which are based on no-till, polyculture, low-maintenance sustainable food production strategies.
