Upcoming Event
   Annual Scion Exchange Saturday February 18, 2017, 1:00 - 3:30 p.m.

California Rare Fruit Growers is the largest amateur fruit-growing organization in the world, with members in 48 states and U.S. territories, and in 35 countries.

Mission statement: The purposes of CRFG shall be to encourage and further public and scientific research, education and preservation of plants worldwide that have edible seeds, fruit, leaves, stems or roots.

The Central Coast Chapter is one of 21 chapters in California. We enjoy touring local orchards, exchanging knowledge and plants, learning about grafting and growing, and interacting with the Agriculture Department at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. We meet in San Luis Obispo County monthly, usually on the second Saturday.

We are a non-profit organization. We are not a business and do not sell fruit or fruit trees. We do hold an annual scion exchange at our February meeting, where CRFG members and the general public can exchange scion wood and learn how to graft it to their own fruit trees.
