Help us Expand the Harvest to Queen Anne & Magnolia

Magnolia Community Council , Uncategorized

In 2017, City Fruit hopes to expand the annual harvest effort to Queen Anne and Magnolia neighborhoods! But, we need your help! 

We are looking for neighborhood residents, tree owners, businesses, community organizations, and others interested in the annual harvest to serve on an Advisory Committee. This committee will help develop ideas for registering new tree owners, engaging the community, and raising funds to support the harvest. We are also interested in expanding our Orchard Stewardship to the area and have begun to identify fruit trees on public land.

If you are interested in joining the Advisory Committee, email City Fruit’s executive director, Kate Morrison, at kate@cityfruit.org. The time commitment will be minimal: we are looking for your ideas and connections in Queen Anne and Magnolia neighborhoods.

To kick-off this work, the committee will meet once in January at a local coffee shop or gathering place.

Special Meeting – August 15th 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm United Church of Christ, Magnolia

Community News , Uncategorized

Representing Queen Anne and Magnolia neighborhood organizations.

Special Meeting: Monday, August 15, 7-9 PM

Mayor’s Executive Order and Future Directions for our District Council

United Church of Christ (Pilgrim Hall)

3555 W McGraw St.

Volunteers in Magnolia, Queen Anne and Uptown have for many years worked through their District Council to improve their neighborhoods. Our neighborhoods have parks, gardens, trails and sidewalks to show for these efforts.

The Mayor, on July 13, severed ties with all city-chartered District Councils. The Councils can continue, but the City will no longer support them nor will the Councils continue to set priorities for neighborhood projects.

The August 15 special meeting is to discuss the Mayor’s action and how our District Council should operate going forward. Please join us if you are interested in continuing to build community, as we have been doing for many years.

The Agenda for the meeting includes:

  • Review recent developments
  • Role and Value of the District Council
  • What do we need from the City and from our volunteers to be more effective?

Share your views with us. We look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
