This is the blueberry u-pick operation featured on August cover of Central Florida Ag News. Help them out by bringing along a few 2 liter bottles to build a low cost vertical garden system. We'll demonstrate how to build that system at the meeting and then you'll be asking people to collect 2 liter bottles for you so you can make your own!
