 January 2015 Scionwood Exchange Minimize

January Scionwood Exchange

Please ensure you follow the basic guidelines for the scionwood exchange.  It is important that patented varieties are not brought and we are still under a citrus quarantine so these cannot be brought, either.

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

The next Chapter meeting will be in January for the annual scion exchange.  10 volunteers are needed to be at the tables scionwood are located.  We would like to have knowledgeable people at the tables of their expertise, but any volunteer is welcome.  Volunteers will have first 'dibs' on scionwood, then Members who brought scionwood, then Members who did not and then we will open the exchange to non-members.  We need volunteers for workshops and classes about grafting, techniques, equipment and mentoring for small group hands-on grafting.
