🌿 Learn about natural Florida!

Nick Giannola was born and raised in the northwest suburbs of Chicago where he spent much of his childhood playing in the woods and fishing. His love for nature only grew stronger as his family made frequent trips to the Wisconsin north woods to stay at their cabin on the lake. Nick graduated from Michigan State University with a bachelors of science in fisheries and wildlife and promptly started work as an invasive species monitor. This lead to more hands on work, as an ecological restoration technician, restoring the lands he grew up exploring. Looking for some change from the north, Nick decided to move to Florida and began working for Green Isle Gardens. Nick is currently the nursery manager, overseeing the day to day functions of the nursery.

Durning the past four years with Green Isle Gardens, Nick has gained "boots on the ground" experience working with natives, in both the nursery and landscape setting. He has been able to watch, first hand, the effects of different pruning techniques and their outcomes over a long period of time.

Cuplet Fern is pleased to have Nick present to our community. Free admission. Donations towards YOUTH ECO-CAMP 🤗 welcomed and highly encouraged at the meeting! Small selection of locally grown native plants also available for purchase (proceeds go towards YOUTH ECO-CAMP SPONSORSHIPS!)👦👧🏽👦🏾
