Celebrate Edible Landscaping: Learn and Share at the Festival of Fruit in San Luis Obispo, August 2016


crfg_fof_logo_lgThe Central Coast chapter of the California Rare Fruit Growers (CRFG) has been busily preparing to host the 2016 Festival of Fruit at the end of August in San Luis Obispo County. Assistant Cheerleader, retired Cal Poly agriculture education professor, and former chapter chair Joe Sabol joined us on our X Marks the Spot with Central Coast Foodie community radio show on July 29, 2016 to discuss this dynamic group of educators and life-long learners focused on backyard fruit. Learn more about the California Rare Fruit Growers annual conference, the Festival of Fruit, and consider attending this once-a-decade opportunity in the central Central Coast. Thanks for a great interview, Joe!

As Joe explains in this interview, when a CRFG chapter hosts the Festival of Fruit, the event planning process can help chapter members learn about the talents of their fellow members and add cohesion to a chapter.
