About Us

The California Rare Fruit Growers, West Los Angeles Chapter, are people just like you…  only probably with a little more dirt under their fingernails.  In backyards, front yards and pots, we are pushing the boundaries of what it is possible to grow west of La Cienega.  Our membership includes some of the great authorities on propagating cherimoyas, grafting guavas and growing thirty different varieties of blueberries…  We also include beekeepers, worm herders, compost churners;  and welcome all others — even those just starting out — who want to learn exactly how it’s done.

PS. If you live east of La Cienega or anywhere else, you are of course also welcome.  It is just that the West LA Chapter tends to battle issues like “did we have ANY sun last summer?”  and “did we have ANY winter this winter?” more than zones less affected by the nearness of the ocean.
