Vashon Island Fruit Club, formed in 2004 by Dr. Bob Norton with a group of dedicated fruit growers, is an affiliate of Western Cascade Fruit Society. Our club is open to all skill levels of orchardists who wish to further their fruit growing knowledge for the Pacific Northwest climate.
Our goal is to provide home growers and professionals with learning experiences appropriate to our climate and soil conditions. The club accomplishes this through our quarterly meetings, programs, orchard tours and workshops. VIFC members are active volunteers in fruit club activities such as Ciderfest, Peninsula Fruit Club Fall Fruit Show, VIFC Orchard at Sunrise Ridge, Strawberry Social, Vashon Strawberry Festival and Summer BBQ/Potluck. Meetings are usually held on the fourth Wednesday of the month at the Vashon – Maury Island Land Trust Bldg at 10014 SW Bank Rd in downtown Vashon from 6 pm – 8 or 8:30 pm.
