Here is the description from the CRFG-SD site:

Resources Conservation through Soil Management Plants don't outperform the soil they are in, and managing San Diego's soils can be a challenge. Fortunately, through an integrated management strategy, we can conserve water, nutrients, and organic matter; as well as prevent soil erosion, decrease fire risk, reduce strain on our aging civil infrastructure, and grow amazing plants. Soil is the link between the earth, atmosphere, and water. Learn about rediscovered soil building techniques for small and large spaces that will help ensure productive plants for now and the future.

This is the meeting of the Rare Fruit Growers of San Diego. The meetings are open to the public, but it is only $ 13 for a whole year to become a member of the local chapter. Not all members are dedicated to organic practices, but many are and much of the information you can learn here applies to all growing techniques.

Members who bring snacks and their own utensils enjoy front of the line privileges, so don't forget to bring your own eating utensils. Lets cut down on the waste we generate.

    I'll be there on Wed Mar 26, my 2nd meeting. I have goodies to share! I'll be bringing an arm load of sword ferns, jade plants , many with 4-5 in bases, and spider plants. All happy and healthy, just needing a new home after thinning the garden to make way for my new trees!

    I'm biased, but...you don't want to miss this one! Blending tried and true soil science with Permaculture and my own innovations is proving to be a great way to manage soil for overall resource conservation: water, organic matter, nutrients, erosion, and fire. Bring a friend to this FREE talk and walk away with some concepts and ideas you can use in small and large spaces. see crfgsandiego.org for more details.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
