ECHO Get Into Gardening 2014

  • Jun 14, 2014 · 9:00 AM

If you want to meet up with other Permaculturists meet on the front porch at 2pm.

Get into gardening on June 14, 2014 at ECHO's Tropical Fruit Nursery. From 9 am to 4 pm this event will feature workshops for both new and experienced gardeners. All workshops will be offered free of charge.

Educational workshops will focus on ways to grow food in our own backyards using practical/simple gardening techniques and the wide variety of fruit trees and edible plants that grow in Florida’s warm climate.

Take part in free tropical gardening workshops such as Organic Gardening, Fruit Tree Grafting, Summer Vegetable Gardening, Herbs for SW Florida, Container Gardening, Gardening with Earthworm Castings, Bamboo, and How to “Fertilize Smart”.

The regularly scheduled guided tour of ECHO's Global Demonstration Farm will still be available at 10 am.

“The Tropical Fruit Nursery is a training tool, a living classroom, for students, interns and guests, but it is also a service to the community,” remarks ECHO President/CEO, Stan Doerr. “We hope that through this event the community will be able to provide more affordable foods for their families, even from their own backyards”.

    I will be driving down with Malory Foster. We will be leaving at 8:30 am and staying until about 3 or 3:30 pm. I have room in my car for a couple of people if anyone needs a ride. Easiest way to contact me would be to send me an email using the link on my profile...but I will try to check the meetup once more tonight and then again in the morning.
