Consider Joining the "WWFRF" Friends of Fruit Group

Think about attending one of the great events the friends of fruit club holds at the Washington State University Mt. Vernon Research Station. You will have fun and learn alot and you might want to become a member of this organization of amateur fruit growers. Being a member has great advantages. You can attend very interesting field days and come during the summer to Mt. Vernon WA to harvest and take home hundreds of varieties of delicious fruit. However, we would urge those of you who live too far away to come to the events, to still become members or to give a donation so “WWFRF” and Raintree can continue to provide you and future generations with the opportunity to grow, in your own yard, the best fruit on the planet.

WWFRF Fruit enthusiasts head out to the orchards at WSU Mt. Vernon, WA!

WWFRF hosts two Saturday field days a year at the WSU Mt. Vernon WA. Station. On the first Saturday in March each year the winter field day featured a full day of classroom and hands on instruction in pruning fruit trees, grafting and ecological pest control. The day is a great help to beginners and to more experienced home fruit growers. Also people take home newly grafted fruit trees.  On the 2nd Saturday in October there is a sample the harvest field day. Members will taste and evaluate dozens of varieties of apples and other fruit and attend classes. On the 3rd Saturday in August is the Summer Fruit Festival where people listen to interesting speakers and taste the fruits of the season including figs and plums. 

There is a beautiful display garden at the WSU Mt. Vernon WA station which is maintained by many organizations including WWFRF. It includes rose gardens, herb and vegetable gardens, many beautiful ornamentals and of course fruit.

Fruit Tasting is a popular event with WWFRF Members!


The program welcomes volunteers who learn techniques to use in their own garden. Plus, during harvest season there is delicious fruit to take home. It’s a lot of fun! Volunteer and learn how to prune and care for blueberries, grapes, kiwis and a wide variety of fruit trees.
