September 22, 2012

Fort Myers, Fl (September 17, 2012) Join Edison & Ford Winter Estates horticulturalists, Debbie Hughes and Todd Roy for a second Garden Talk workshop this month, “Edible Fall Gardens,” on September 22, 2012 at 9 a.m. to learn how to start a fall garden for winter harvest.

Nearly one hundred years ago the Edison family grew fruits and vegetables on their winter estate and today the site has a year round organic vegetable garden, dozens of fruit trees and raised vegetable bed gardens as well as an Emerging Inventor’s Garden tended by children ages one – three years old. Participants will learn which vegetables thrive and how to start and maintain their own garden at home.

Edison Ford Members FREE; non members $5. Participants will receive 20% off in the Edison Ford Garden Shoppe. Workshop includes tour of the Edison Ford demonstration garden. For more information call 239-334-7419.
The Edison Ford is open daily from 9:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. The Edison Ford is the winner of the 2009 National Stewardship Award from the National Trust for Historic Preservation and is an official project of “Save America’s Treasures” at the National Trust for Historic Preservation, a Florida Historic Landmark and a National Register Historic Site.
