MEETING: Saturday August 13th, 2016 @ 10 a.m.

Location:  Veterans Memorial Building, Multipurpose Room, 4117 Overland Ave., Culver City 90230 

Topic: 50 Fruits of the Future

Speaker: Steven Murray Jr.

Steven is a past recipient from our CRFG scholarship fund and he is an accomplished lecturer.  For those of you who attended his last lecture in December, we are sure you will enjoy this lecture even more.  Steven’s passion for fruit has taken him around the world multiple times in search of new and exotic rare fruits.

Over the last few years, he has compiled a list of rare fruits he is hopeful will become part of California’s new cash crops.  Most of these fruits he believes will adapt to growing well in the Southern California weather.  Through his travels he has seen, touched, and smelled these new fruits and in many cases is starting to grow them on his family’s farm up in the Bakersfield area.  We highly recommend this lecture to anyone who would like to experience discovering new and exotic fruits from around the world.

Please bring fruit or other treats to share. The more we share, the more we encourage others to share. Now is the perfect time to bring some summer fruits from the farmer’s market.
