Festival of Fruit 2016: Year of Edible Landscaping, A to Z – Apples to Zapote

August 26-28th
San Luis Obispo County

The Central Coast Chapter of CRFG is hard at work planning an exciting and educational Festival for you.  We will have two full days of garden tours on Friday and Sunday (see the article on Robert and Carol Scott’s home in the current issue of the Fruit Gardener magazine – just one of the fantastic gardens on the tour).  There will be a “meet and greet” on Friday night.  All day Saturday will be spent on the Cal Poly campus with Rosalind Creasy, our keynote speaker, kicking things off.  Ms. Creasy is the author of “The complete book of EDIBLE LANDSCAPING” and a number of other gardening related books – including cooking from the garden.   Many amazing and fun speakers will be available throughout the day as well as vendor and non-profit information booths.  The day will end with a delicious (BBQ) dinner followed by a passionate speaker who will stimulate your sweet tooth – think chocolate.
The Central Coast, with its year round sunny and mild climate, is an internationally acclaimed destination.   The area abounds in bike and hiking trails, world class wineries, great farmers markets and restaurants, the Hearst castle, beautiful beaches, and charming small towns.  You will find much to do here during your stay so come early and stay late, make a vacation of it, bring your walking shoes and camera and join us for the best festival ever!
