BUS LEAVES AT 8am.
8am-4pm 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 located at 2000 N Recreation Way in North Fort Myers 33903, we will transport you throughout Lee County to cram in visits to a bee farm (enclosed in the bus that is!), commercial veggie and citrus farm, home garden on steroids, a never done before experience at ECHO with aquaponics, 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.
We sell out when 50 tickets are purchased! Write checks out to to: Lee County 4-H. Mail to Lee County 4-H, P.O. Box 3267, North Fort Myers, Fl 33918. Note "Vegheads Bus" on your check and include name, address and phone number.
