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!
