Get Into Gardening 2016

  • ECHO Global Nursery 17391 Durrance Rd North Fort Myers, FL, 33917 United States (map)

Get into gardening on October 1, 2016 at ECHO's Global Nursery and Bookstore.  From 9 am to 3 pm this event will feature workshops for both new and experienced gardeners.  Workshops will be offered free of charge.

Educational workshops will focus on ways to grow food in our own backyards using practical/simple gardening techniques and over 90 varieties of fruit trees and edible plants that grow in Florida’s warm climate. 

Take part in free tropical gardening workshops such as Forest Gardening, Edible Landscaping, Gardening in SW Florida, Container Gardening, Backyard Beekeeping, Tropical Fruit Grafting, and more. 

Our regularly scheduled guided tour of ECHO's Global Demonstration Farm will also be available at 9:30 am, 11:30 am, and 12:30 pm. 

“The Tropical Fruit Nursery is a training tool, a living classroom, for students, interns and guests, but it is also a service to the community,” remarks President/CEO, David Erickson. “We hope that through this event the community will be able to provide more affordable foods for their families, even from their own backyards”.
