A new vision for Wedgwood's Hunter Farms

June 2nd, 2011 by Support Staff

The Hunter Tree Farm, long a fixture in central Wedgwood, is slated to be developed into a community gathering place, according to the Wedgwood Community Council.

A large version of the poster is here.

The community council has received a grant from the the Pomegranate Center and Tully’s Coffee to develop the site at 7744 35th Ave. N.E. where the Hunter family has sold Christmas trees for a half-century.

The primary goal of this gathering place project is to improve the ability of the site to accommodate greater public gatherings while allowing the Hunter Family to maintain their thriving Christmas tree business.

The first meeting on the project is set for June 11 at Messiah Lutheran Church, 7050 35th Ave. N.E. The agenda is below. More information can be found on the community council website.
