Brandon Street Orchard

In the 1930's, King County seized a small lot in the Hillman City neighborhood. For decades, the spot was used as a makeshift dump - until neighbors decided to turn it around. The land was purchased by the Department of Neighborhoods from the county for $2000.00. In 2003, neighbors put together a Department of Neighborhoods Matching Fund grant to build the orchard.

What's Growing? Community, side by side, with Asian pears, European pears, Italian prunes, apples, blueberries, kiwi and currants.

They hold regular work parties. Planting, pruning and taking pride in their garden. For more information, please contact Dan Eder at #206-723-9411 (please call before 8pm) or email: daneder@yahoo.com .
