NMF Funded Freeway Estates Community Orchard gets Underway with Plantings and a Website

Information provided by Ruth Callard, Chair of the Freeway Estates Community Orchard Marketing Committee

Growth of many kinds is underway at the Freeway Estates Community Orchard!  Fruit and nut trees have recently been planted, a landscape architect will be hired, and a new website is now live!

The Orchard recieved a $19,215 Small and Simple award from the Neighborhood Matching Fund to design and develop a piece of WSDOT-owned land next to I-5 at 6th Ave NE between NE 60th St & NE 63rd.  The landscape architect will create a design that will be presented to the community and reviewed to ensure that it meets the needs of the neighborhood. 

Please visit the  new website at to view  files and photos, a volunteer page with applicable resource material and a donations page for cash and in-kind donations.
