3rd Annual Northport Community Fruit Tree Fundraiser.
Once again we are having our annual fruit tree sale to raise money to purchase propane for the community garden green house.
These trees are grown in Washington state for our climate. Fruit trees are $16 each. They are bare root and dormant. They will be available for pick up as soon as we can plant...around May. We will have a Colville, Spokane drop.
