Chestnuts, Figs, Plums, and Apples

Within the last year much has been accomplished at the Meadowbrook Orchard. Fig plantings in a newly designated site west of the North Orchard, Mini dwarf Apple plantings in the North Orchard, additions to the East Orchard (Japanese Yellow Plums and Chestnut plantings) and last years expansion of the Edible Hedge (along NE 105th) have brought visibility and ‘buy in’ to the cause of Urban Forests. All of these developments have come because Seattle Parks and the surrounding community have said, ‘Yes, we can.’  The future looks promising. Use of Meadowbrook Park, the location next to so many schools and the commitment by the community, make this site a great place to be.
