Seattle area? Piper Orchard
I am guessing about 40 people read this thread on a regular basis......maybe as many as 100......and that maybe 10 or so are in the Seattle area.....usually I stick to just topics that pertain as well to the Portland area....as it is courtesy of this area that we owe this forum and that is where the remarks should be dedicated to:
Hopefully, it is not too "tacky" if I advertise for a Seattle event coming up on Sept.24th.....for anyone in this area or beyond who wants to travel here: www.pipersorchard.org
Access the above website and you can get directions and agenda. We will have some orchard experts in the afternoon talking shop about fruit trees in the orchard.....and in the morning we will have a US Park Service historian, Susan Dolan, speaking about the history of fruit in America and the preservation of our historic orchards......
It should be good, but due to inadequate advertising, I don't anticipate much more than 50 people to come to our lectures.
