      Abacoa Community Garden

         October ushers in an exciting chapter in our garden’s yearly
      calendar, as it marks the beginning of our planting season. The
      Planting Committee has been conferring with garden members
      as to the popular choices for community bed plantings,
      ordering organic seeds and laying out the design. Their design
      includes crop rotation to optimize nutrient combination while
      deterring the nematodes and other end-of-the-year diseases.
         The kickoff unfolded on the first Saturday of October
      with a delightful breakfast gathering at the garden. It was
      an opportunity for newcomers to learn about the garden
      and to learn about the nuances of organic horticulture
      within  the unique microclimate  of  South  Florida.

      lead in managing of a community bed.                  Our garden is more than just a source of sustenance; it’s      Garden membership runs from Aug. 1 to July
