Upcoming Events


Apple Tree Harvest - Crop Mob!

The Environmental Center is seeking out both Apple Trees to harvest and harvest volunteers...so that we can serve you locally-sourced Juice & Cream Bean Berry Apple Ice Cream!

The EC will have a crew of volunteers headed out on foot and bike and scooter every Thursday from 12:20-2:15 to gather unwanted fruit in our community that will become Cream Bean Berry Apple Ice Cream. Join in this amazing experience by signing up your tree to be harvested or coming along to pluck fruit. Or, imbibe in the goodness every Wednesday from 1-4 at the Campus Farmstand.

When: Every Thursday from 12:20 pm to 2:15 pm

Where: Meet at the Environmental Center, then head out to assigned campus and community neightborhood trees.

Sign-Up: To donate your tree for harvest or volunteer to be on a harvest crew, email Zack at zlbauer@fortlewis.edu
