Community Orchard, South Seattle Community College

The Community Orchard of West Seattle is in it’s second year and is now a project of Sustainable West Seattle. In it’s first year COWS converted a narrow strip of unused land on the north end of the South Seattle Community College into a working community garden and a growing orchard for the near future. The narrow strip that was available truly resembles in size and layout what most folks would call a lawn.

Last year COWS donated approximately 300 pounds of fresh organic produce to the local food banks and this year plans for an increased yield.

For the most part COWS is a volunteer operated and self revenue operation after receiving it’s initial grant to get started. Every Tuesday between 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm COWS hosts the weekly Health and Harvest work party. This is a great opportunity to learn some advanced gardening techniques and get in some spring exercise. Other events include an annual seed sale and plant sale. Volunteering is very rewarding!
