Support the Rare Fruit Council

There are two ways to join the Rare Fruit Council. Via the information on this page, or in person at our next event – you’ll find a list of meetings and events at the bottom of this page.

To join online, simply complete this form and then pay for your selected membership option via PayPal below.

NEW – Memberships renew annually on your anniversary. While we hope you remain a member for many years to come, you may cancel your subscription in PayPal at anytime before your anniversary date to avoid being auto-charged for the coming year.
As the name suggests, individual memberships are for a single, named member, and is suitable for both domestic and international members; family memberships include members of the immediate household. The supporting membership option is for those who choose to give a little extra to the council (thank you!) and includes a family membership.
Lifetime memberships are available and may be purchased using the form in the donation section to the right (below on mobile).

The COVID Protocols for In-Person Meetings

  • Attendees must complete an ”Assumption of Risk and Release of Liability Form” (provided on-site)
  • Everyone will have their temperature checked and recorded
  • Masks on the whole time
  • Don’t come if you’re sick
  • NO EATING will be permitted during meetings
On the food restriction note – we can still share and swap fruits. So please bring anything you’d like to share, and a separate container to gather up a few fruits from your friends to enjoy later, at home. Let’s keep it to fruit this time and steer clear of prepared foods.
