I think that this an excellent message and hits at the heart of how NAFEX
should project its image. Many of the problems being discussed would be less
with this type of approach. I learn from each email and article in Pomona.
It doesn't matter how inexperienced the contributor. Although I had numerous
fruit trees and some years of experience, I hesitated contributing because
of the expertise of the membership.

Oh, I'm a new member too and I do remember reading that and feeling a little
nervous.... I'm not only a new member but also a new orchardist -- so new,
in fact, that I have yet to plant my first tree! In fact I wondered if maybe
I wasn't too inexperienced and ignorant for NAFEX, maybe it was an
organization for serious experts.....

But I like the idea that it's just about writing a letter to a group of
like-minded folks to let them know where I am in my fruit exploring
adventure. It's not a professional association, more of an amateur society
(as the website says, even the professionals among us are amateurs in the
true sense of the word). I'm so excited about the chance to finally grow
some old and unfashionable fruit, and I am so glad to have a forum of people
who can relate to that excitement!
