Alachua County has a large agricultural industry ranging from horticulture, beef cattle, nurseries, row crops and much more.  We will visit local nurseries, blueberry farm, cattle ranch, vegetable packing shed, perennial peanut farm, and discuss best management practices and cover crops.  In addition, there will be topics on Florida-Friendly Landscaping™, 4-H Youth Development, and local food preparation.

Participants must register online. Registration will be limited to the first 50 pre-paid registrants.  There will be no refunds for the registration fee.

Come and learn more about what is growing in Alachua County’s backyard and to see what local agriculture is all about.
