Send pictures of your growing areas to Elaine at firstname.lastname@example.org, or text them to her at 239-269-6389; she will present members’ ideas, and highlight unique spaces and ideas. Show us how you use wire shelving, wooden benches, mounts, hanging areas; or how you mount in trees and your other landscaping ideas!
All ideas welcome; it’ll be fun!
