Please join us Thursday evening, March 14, from 7-9pm at the Snohomish Boys & Girls Club, located at 402 2nd Street, Snohomish to hear our very own John Cornell speak to us about Growing Avocados. John is our Board Vice President and has been a commercial avocado grower in California since 1992. His 34 acre orchard in Southwest Riverside County, currently grows Hass and Reed avocados, but they also have Star Ruby Grapefruit, Southern Highbush Blueberries, Seedless Kishu citrus and other assorted citrus and stone fruit. Approximately two acres of John’s California property has experimental rootstocks selected by UC for evaluation trials. If that isn’t enough, John is also the current Editor of the Index Insider Newsletter distributed throughout the avocado grower community and past member of the research committee for the California Avocado Commission! Bring your pen and note paper as it is sure to be an informative evening!
Please come a few minutes early to meet some of our new members and enjoy some snacks, desserts, and beverages. We will start our meeting promptly at 7pm with a short business overview. We will continue to dedicate some time for a question & answer session for those members experiencing problems in their orchards (Please bring samples of your issue if possible), and then we will welcome our speaker.
We look forward to another great year of learning and growing more & better fruit!
