The Vashon Fruit Club!
We are a chapter the 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.
Vashon Island Fruit Club, was formed in 2004 by the late Dr. Bob Norton with a group of dedicated fruit growers. Our quarterly meetings, programs, orchard tours and workshops are open to all members.
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 Picnic Potluck.
Meetings are usually (non-Covid time) held on the fourth Tuesday or Wednesday of the month at the Vashon Library at 17210 Vashon Hwy SW in downtown Vashon from 6:15 pm – 8:15 pm. Click on the CALENDAR & EVENTS tabs (above) for our 2022 meetings & events schedule.
