Hosted by: Alameda Backyard Growers

Brian Lavin is a biologist who does molecular work and herpetology among other things. Having picked up growing plants as a hobby, he decided to concentrate on fruiting plants. He has traveled around California looking at what can grow here and has experimented with growing various species from both seeds and plants. He has been chapter chair for the Golden Gate Chapter of the CRFG since early 2019. Brian will talk about the California Rare Fruit Growers (CRFG) organization, its goals and how to participate in and benefit from it.
