Just having been one of the recipients of a free tree, the timing could not have been better as I have endeavored to try my hand at gardening. The encouragement always welcome and help was offered and this spurred me on, help hasn’t shown up yet. So this gift of a tree was the push I needed to complete the first half of my front yard. I’d lost heart as the Beaugenvilla, I’ve been watering daily hasn’t even grown an inch in 3 mo. Not just that but it isn’t even mentioned in my hardback “Florida Gardening” book. I’ve taken a compost class given by the City of Lake Worth with Tony pictured here.
Every time I see him he has something growing healthy most likely edible . There is a magazine out there, a freebee but as I just left their site and it’s out dated, pick it up at your local grocery. It has a turtle on the cover and the heading is about sustainability. I don’t advertise but each time I see Tony he has been helpful so i’m posting his classes here. ORGANIC GARDENING CLASSES, CHILDREN UNDER 12 Free. All classes appear to be around $20. He is generous and well worth your time and money.
