Program for the March 2nd General Meeting:

General Meeting - Program: Speaker, Julie Frink, “The Avocado Lady”: An avid interest in fruit varieties led her to volunteer in 1992 to compile data on avocado varieties for UC at Riverside. That led to a twenty year career as “curator” of the avocado variety collection at South Coast Research and Extension Center. She volunteers to help keep this collection of now 200 varieties the best in the world, grafting as needed and seeing to their health and proper growth.
