FALLBROOK – The University of California Cooperative Extension in conjunction with the California Macadamia Society and the Gold Crown Macadamia Association will hold their Annual Field Day on Saturday, Sept. 27 from 8:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the home of Scott and Rena Liles, 1378 Willow Glen Road, Fallbrook.
Anyone interested in learning about growing macadamias in California is invited to attend for a fun and information filled day. In addition to the commercial groves, macadamias make excellent back yard trees, are beautiful as landscaping, and can be grown in tubs on the patio. The macadamia is native to Australia and has been grown in California continuously since 1879.
The day will include classes on topics germane to the macadamia industry, with plenty of opportunities to ask questions, both general in nature and about the specifics of individual operations. A continental breakfast and delicious lunch will be served.
Registration is required; cost is $17 per person if pre-paid by Sept. 10, $20 per person after that. Visit www.macnuts.org/fieldday.htm for a registration form. Mail registration form along with check to: California Macadamia Society, P. O. Box 1298, Fallbrook, CA 92088.
