The Friends of Piper’s Orchard is a group of dedicated volunteers who rescued the historic North Seattle orchard from invasive plants. The volunteers ensure that the orchard, originally planted in the 1890s, will survive at least another 100 years.
The Festival is sponsored by Friends of Piper’s Orchard, Seattle Parks and Recreation, and Carkeek Park Advisory Council.
