If you live in the Bay Area, and are interested in growing backyard fruit, you should join me next Saturday at the California Rare Fruit Growers annual Scion Exchange. There will be classes on grafting fruit trees, and more varieties of graft-able fruitwood than you could possibly imagine.
The goal of the Scion Exchange are twofold. First, people generously share favorite, locally grown fruit with interested neighbors. Secondly, rare fruits are kept in production, hopefully saving them from extinction.
Generosity and conservation. What could be more noble than that?
It only costs four bucks, and it might just improve your opinion of humans.
