Also, IF you are interested in volunteering some of your time to the group (we are an all volunteer association), that would be welcomed. While volunteering is not for everyone, it is a great way to add value to your membership: you learn from others by working with them.

  • Researching & writing on fruit growing matters,
  • helping to organize events, and
  • participating on our various project teams are just a few of the opportunities that we offer to members.  

So if you'd like to help out and have the time, please let us know on the New Member's Form.  

If you also tell us what your interests are, we'll try to match them up.
