Membership to the Santa Clara Valley chapter of the CRFG is open to all fruit enthusiasts! New and inexperienced, or long-time growers.
The best way to become a member, is to come to one of our bi-monthly meetings at Emma Prusch Park in San Jose. We will be happy to help you understand your choices for joining the group while you are at the meeting. See the “Activites” page for the scheduled meetings.
Paid members get first selection at the yearly scion exchange, a bi-monthly newsletter, and membership to the online discussion group. Membership dues are $10 per year, plus the dues for the state organization of the California Rare Fruit Growers (CRFG), which vary depending on the membership format you choose. You must be a member of CRFG in order to join the chapter. State members receive the “Fruit Gardener” magazine and are eligible to attend the annual “Festival of Fruits”.
