Posted 18 February 2012 - 07:19 PM
Heathcote Organic Gardens will also offer a tour at 2pm. 210 Savannah Road in Fort Pierce.
Kai-Kai (8006 SW Kanner Highway in Indiantown) will offer a visit to their seedling house, and a tour of their CSA packing sheds from 2-3
D&D Farms (5059 SW Citrus Blvd in Palm City) will offer an all-day pick your own vegetables opportunity, and an onsite chef preparing foods from the gardens.
Gibbons Organic (3904 Kings Highway in Fort Pierce) will offer tours from 4-6pm of their greenhouses, papaya and banana plantations, and beds of vegetables. They sell at the Fort Pierce Farmers market, and usually vend a range of produce, including mizuna, tatsoi, etc. I'll probably visit this location.
No website offered for info on this tour, but I have the brochure if anyone is interested. The Farmers Market will be open on the day of the tour.

For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old institution and merely lukewarm defenders in those who gain by the new ones. ”
