For those farm owners who may have some conservation areas set aside to protect native habitat and wildlife, here is a great opportunity that you might be interested in especially if this area protects gopher tortoise sites.  It is nice when we can point to programs on farm that benefits the greater community by protecting biodiversity.  Release No. 152012 Contact: Jeffrey Woods, 352-338-9515

Having a backup plan for marketing your plants is always a good thing.  You never know where a valuable customer might be found.  Here is a communication I received from Colleen Mucahey from USF about their need to find some farmers who are willing to sell produce at their farmers market on campus.  They are seeking ornamental plant growers as well. It is all student volunteers at the moment
