For our September 2020 newsletter, we featured an article written by our Environmental Horticulture Agent, Michelle Leonard-Mularz, discussing gardening in the Keys.gardening

"With COVID-19 putting a halt to our schedules, many of us have had an opportunity to reconnect with old hobbies and interests and also find new passions to explore.  Gardening has become a welcomed pastime for longtime enthusiasts and even beginners, with little to no experience. Whether it is a desire to grow more local food, learn about our native flora and fauna, or simply observe and understand more of what is happening in our yards……gardening has become a much-needed distraction. Yet gardening in the Keys has its challenges and those challenges need to be considered when making decisions about our landscapes and gardens”
