New Master Gardeners
Congratulations to the new Master Gardeners who received their certificates at the Leon County Extension yesterday (12/7/2015) at our Holiday celebration and quarterly meeting. Congratulations and thanks particularly to those who have volunteered in the VegHeadz demonstration garden. Their help and enthusiasm have been invaluable in maintaining the garden in its best form ever.
We also heard a great presentation from Dr. Peter Anderson from the UF North Florida Education and Research Center in Gadsten County. His specialty is sustainable fruit and nut crops for north Florida. Both his presentation and his handout were very informative.
The VegHeadz also shared information about and rhizomes from three edible gingers in the VegHeadz garden--Galangal, Turmeric, and Ginger Root, as well as Arrowroot. They disappeared like snow in July. Hope everyone who got some has success in growing and using them. Also hope we get reports of their results. Feedback is always good.
