Welcome to the Community Orchard!Orchard | Orchard History | Orchard Report
Our CRFG demonstration orchard is located off Highland Drive on the Cal Poly Campus. From its conception in 1997, it now contains more than 70 trees, many of which are low-chill. Orchard enthusiasts and history buffs can read all about its history.
Every year during our January meeting, we invite a "guest pruner" to provide us all with a demonstration followed by a pruning session by the membership and guests. This is a great opportunity for members and guests to learn different pruning techniques, and to hone their skills! As with all CRFG Central Coast Chapter meetings, the public is always invited. See information and pictures in this 2014 article in the Tribune.
Find out how the trees are fruiting in the new Annual Orchard Report.
