We are a group of ardent fruit growers who are enthusiastic about growing unusual fruits, many of which you would rarely find in your local grocery store. We are all interested in learning, and in sharing our knowledge about growing rare fruits. At our meetings throughout the year, we have various interesting activities, including:
Field Trips to member's gardens, nurseries, botanical gardens, commercial orchards.
Presentations given by experts in a particular fruit, or special aspect of rare fruit growing.
Scionwood Exchanges where you can get the material required to graft a new variety of fruit onto a similar tree that you are already growing.
Fruit Tastings where members bring fruit from their gardens to meetings, for you to sample.
Group Purchases of plants and difficult to find materials.
Plant Raffles where members contribute their excess plants to help other members enhance their collections, and at the same time, help our chapter.
