Prepping for Cold

Although Florida has not become the massive arctic landscape seen elsewhere in the country, we’ve still had our work cut out for us trying to prepare our vegetables for the prolonged plummet in temperature. The farm team really brought the heat on Sunday and Monday covering our Bell Pepper plants and installing insulation on the greenhouse to ensure bountiful harvests for months to come. While some of the Nightshades may be wrapping up their time with us, we are excited to have new starts in the greenhouse growing for the spring.


As the kids return to school this week, it would be a great time to tell your child’s teacher about our Field Trip Program. Our educational field trips are fantastic tools to supplement science curricula as your children learn about plant life cycles, organic and inorganic materials, soil health, and the life sciences. For more information and questions, please contact our Education Program Manager, Chris, at


For life-long learners, we have the Introduction to Permaculture Workshop with Bob Abbenzeller coming up this Sunday, January 12 from 1:30-3:30. This workshop will go over the defining ethics and principles of creating Permanent-Culture. Bob, a certified Permaculture designer, will instruct participants on how to integrate the philosophy of permaculture into their own backyard gardens. Please RSVP or direct your questions to our Workshop Coordinator at, and check out moreĀ upcoming Workshops at the Farm!

See you at the Farm!
