Next Meeting March 8th at BP Energy Center

March 3, 2018

You are cordially invited to the March APFGA general membership meeting on Thursday, March 8, at 6:30 pm in the BP Energy Center, 900 E. Benson Blvd (southwest of main office tower – west of the Marriot) .

Our evening program will be presented by Debbie Hinchey: Tree Science Applied to Buying, Planting, Pruning and Care of Fruit Trees.  The description of the program is as follows:

There are many myths surrounding fruit production.  As more research is done to test some long-held assumptions, a better understanding of best practices for fruit production is emerging.  This will be a brief introduction into some of the science to help others understand what to do and when.

At 6:30 pm there will be refreshments and the opportunity to socialize before the meeting is called to order at 7:00 pm.  Feel free to bring any cookies or light refreshments that you might like to share.

At the meeting, we will again have permanent metal plant tags and parafilm grafting tape for sale.  The tags are 10 for $2, and the parafilm tape is 8 feet for $1.  Bring dollar bills if you are interested in purchasing these items.
