Amateur anglers locate green thumb at Sweetwater Organic Community Farm
TOWN ‘N’ COUNTRY, Fla. – As individuals are getting to be more and more health-conscious, most are producing home gardens.
“Especially in the last year, people have kind of learned about how food security is important and we can’t always depend on grocery stores for the things that we need,” stated Dan Durica, a board member for Sweetwater Organic Community Farm.
Knowing what to grow and should develop it’s a huge bit of Florida gardening. Right today, we’re still at the “winter months” and awareness enables the gardener.
“Lots of Asian greens, different types of lettuces, kale, carrots, beets, this is sort of our peak season,” additional Chris Kenrick, manager of Sweetwater Organic Community Farm.
If you do not have a backyard setup yet but wish to begin planting, you may want to appear forward for the warmer summer plants.
“Tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, squash, things like that. You can get those going now and as the season gets warmer those crops are adapted to the heat,” clarified Durica.
If you are somewhat hesitant to find a green thumb by yourself, you can head to Sweetwater to find out hands-on.
“Our way to teach is by showing you. When you come to volunteer, you’ll see how we grow, put mulch into the field, you’ll see how we seed, and transplant and how we harvest,” said Kenrick.
