TROPICAL FRUIT CLUB OF CENTRAL FLORIDA (TFCCF)
After numerous phone conversations to determine individuals interest and our potential for success, the first official meeting of TFCCF was held in Leu Gardens on July 23, 1990.
The second meeting was held at the same location on Aug. 27, 1990. Larry Shatzer, owner/operator of OUR KIDS NURSERY in Winter Garden and who was the prime coordinator in bringing the small group together, was elected President at this meeting. Annual membership dues were set at $15.00 for single and $20.00 for family. These dues remain the same today.
The purpose of TFCCF is for members to learn about many different Tropical and sub-Tropical fruits and vegetables that can be grown in Florida. The free exchange of information among our members about various cold hardiness and cultivation techniques is invaluable.
No where else can you find or experience an organization with the unity and diversity of TFCCF. One of the best attributes of TFCCF is its ethnicity. Our membership ranges from backyard gardeners to agricultural PHD Scientists. We have members from nearly every continent in the world who share their ethnic foods and culture with all of us.
All members benefit and enjoy our sense of togetherness, while we learn and share from each other.
Numerous trips in Central America have been sponsored by TFCCF and are always well received and participation has been very good.
