8am-3pm on February 25, 2017
hosted by the VegHeads 4-H youth club
The VegHeads 4-H youth are hosting this tour as a fundraiser for their club. Moneys support their seed library, community service projects, summer camp, field trips, plants, club costs, and college scholarships.
Starting at North Fort Myers Recreation Center in North Fort Myers, we will transport you throughout Lee County to cram in visits to an aquaponics farm, bee farm (enclosed in the bus that is!), commercial farm, home garden on steroids, a never done before experience at ECHO, and a national seed company before we return back and provide you with a bag of goodies to take home. The VegHeads are privileged to have the best narrator in SW Florida on Agriculture: Mr. Gene McAvoy, 5-County Veggie UF/IFAS Agent.
In addition to your tour, at each disembark, you will be provided with a healthy Florida produce snack before re-boarding the bus. Then, about noon, you will partake in a Florida foods lunch provided by the VegHeads 4-H club members and their families.
Closed toe shoes are highly recommended. Weak ankles? Boots would be better. A waiver is required.
