About California Rare Fruit Growers
Our parent non-profit organization, founded in 1968, is made up of amateur and professional fruit growers. There are 17 chapters located in California, Arizona, Nevada and Texas. We share information about the propagation and growing of common and rare edible plants. The group also exchanges plant material and assists commercial entities and researchers in the evaluation of new varieties of fruit. We produce a bi-monthly magazine called “The Fruit Gardener” which contains valuable information about fruit gardening. Each year the chapters get together for a “Festival Of Fruit” conference. Each chapter has many activities, guest speakers, fruit tastings, plant sales and field trips related to the growing of fruit.

Our Chapter Information
Membership is open to anyone interested in edible plants.  Benefits include talks by leading horticulturists, discounts at local nurseries, free mulch, fruit tastings, field trips, monthly newsletters, member garden tours, picnics/parties, and more!

Chapter dues are $10/yr email ($15/yr mail), and family members are an additional $5. Membership in the parent organization is also required. You can join the parent organization by clicking on the link to the right.   Join CRFG. Join our Chapter

Arid Cultivation Techniques

On Friday, June 20th at 7:00 p.m. we are very happy to be able to present Patrik Schumann!

Dryland horticulture: Patrik Schumann is an ecological designer, specialty grower, regeneration forester, and back country expeditioner, long based in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  He set out to "design Man's interaction with Nature", pursued autochthonous architecture, environmental design, and edible plantscapes worldwide, and has been practicing (before preaching) radical sustainability and subsistence horticulture at ecOasys high desert.  This city center 1/10 ac. plus 1465 s.f. urban homestead ("the 20% house" for 80% cuts in consumption & 20% levels of production) beat ABQ's residential water conservation target across 15 years of climate warming and drying, while accumulating over 600 species & varieties of adapted fruit, nut, berry plus many more herbs and vegetables in native habitat, edible plantscape, orchard-garden, intensive beds, hoop house, seed bank, garden starts CSA, and   container nursery.  Most are replicated in a constellation of solo, community, collaborative, and client forest, farm, vineyard, orchard, and garden projects.  Patrik's current challenge is planting enough trees for everyone he knows isn't growing enough trees, so his toddler son and the world's children have a better future than we are willing to them.
