Texas Fruit Conference Adds Zoom Option
Registration for the 2021 Texas Fruit Conference Closes 5pm Thursday, October 7th! If you would like to participate, but have travel challenges, we have decided to open a Zoom participation option. Zoom participants will be able to live stream both of our programs (Intro to Fruit Growing Workshop and our Main Conference) using their own computer or smart device.
Cost? Zoom participation in this year’s conference is offered for the same fee structure as in-person participation (Click Button Below). For those who can’t be with us in New Braunfels and choose to Zoom, coffee, refreshments and lunch are unfortunately on your own…
You’ll also miss our fabulous TASTE OF TEXAS FRUIT RECEPTION, Monday 5pm-7pm, featuring fresh fruit, processed fruits, desserts, wine and heavy hors d’oeuvres!
Whether IN-PERSON or ON-LINE,
the Texas Fruit Conference is ready for YOU!
