Sept. 9-11, 2014: Heirloom Expo

Heirloom Expo was well attended (20,000?), and our booth was staffed most of the time.

It was a big hit with attendees, and with hosts, as CRFG-Redwood won Best of Class and Reserve Champion awards! None of us knew the rules or reasons! CRFG-R won best of class for fruit, and 2nd place overall.

The most common question heard from attendees was “I have this fruit (apple,pear, etc) tree in my yard, do you know what it is?”

Golden Gate chapter president John Valenzuela gave a popular talk on “Discover Rare Fruit”.

Attendees took over 400 membership info handouts. The Chapter earned a few hundred dollars on the side selling old Fruit Gardener Magazines for $1 each.

Much fun was had by all!
