I've been updating the Interest Group information, and thought I'd post it
to the group so you can update the e-mails, phone numbers, etc. without
having to wait for POMONA to come out. Read it carefully - there are
changes in existing e-mail addresses, and even some different area codes for
Also, I missed the deadline for the fall issue for some of the
information. Since some of the chairmen don't list phones or e-mail, it
will take a while longer to get them updated.
And if you are interested in working with a group that has no chairman,
or you think a new group is needed, let me know.
Incidently, David Kuchta (Bees for Pollination) has been battling cancer
and it would be good if we could send a note or two to let him know we care.
NAFEX FRUIT & NUT INTEREST GROUPS
To receive a reply, correspondence must include a self-addressed, stamped
envelope. Interest groups allow members to participate directly in NAFEX
through sharing experiences and interests with others of like mind. In
turn, IGs share with NAFEX through Pomona. Share your experiences, reading
and research. Groups work on variety exploration, cultural methods,
collecting and testing varieties, breeding, variety history, or anything
else connected with fruit and nut growing. You can make a single
contribution to a group or be a long-term member. To ask a question, join
a group, or just share something, contact the chairperson of a group. Join
as many as you like.
People interested in chairing or starting new IGs should contact the
Interest Groups Coordinator. It is an excellent way to learn about the
fruit or nut involved, and it takes only enthusiasm and a bit of time.
Please send all additions or corrections to: Interest Groups Coordinator,
