The public is invited to attend this educational opportunity. The class will take place on Saturday, July 20th from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM at the Acreage Branch Library in Loxahatchee.


You are invited to participate in a discussion with Dr. Chris Miller, UF/IFAS PBC Vegetable and Tropical Fruit Extension Agent, for a survey of tropical fruits for south Florida. Whether you want to have something tasty to eat that you grew yourself or add a unique specimen to your landscape, it is a great time to get fruit trees started in your yard.
