The Caloosa Rare Fruit Exchange (CRFE) is holding their annual tree sale on February 14, 2009 at Terry Park off of Palm Beach Blvd in Fort Myers.
The CRFE has monthly meetings on the first Tuesday of every month at 7:30 PM. The group meets in the meeting rooms at the back of the Lee County Extension Office at 3406 Palm Beach Blvd in Terry Park. Parking is in the back.
Meetings consist of speakers on different topics, there is an exchange table for swapping plants with other members, and a tasting table where you can try unusual fruits. The group also goes on tours of nurseries, member's gardens, parks, etc. They also have a monthly newsletter sharing recipes, tips, advice, etc.
Membership dues are $10 per year, plus $5 the first year for your name tag.
If interested in joining or if you have any questions, you may contact the CRFE at 543-9910.
The tree sale will run 9 AM until 3 PM on February 14th. I believe that representatives from ECHO may also be in selling plants at this show.
