Orchard Gardens at Holy Cross Lutheran will host a Community Apple Cider event on Saturday, Sept. 23rd.

The community is invited to pick apples at their heirloom orchard and make fresh apple cider. Organizers suggest bringing a clean pint-sized jar to bring home the cider.

Orchard Gardens grows and donates more than a ton of organic produce each year to Hopelink, benefitting local hungry families. Hopelink will be accepting donations of non-perishable food for its food bank at the event.

P-Patch community gardeners will offer fresh herbs and veggies for sale. For those interested in quilting, there will be an opportunity to tye quilts with the Holy Cross Quilting Group.

Children of all ages are welcome with parental oversight.

Free parking will be available at the Holy Cross parking lot. If full, drivers should park across the street at St. Margaret’s Episcopal. Holy Cross Lutheran Church is located at 4315 129th Place SE in Bellevue. For more information, call 425-746-4848. To volunteer, email
