Alachua County Gardening Programs
The UF/IFAS Extension Alachua County Office is pleased to announce the following Environmental and Community Horticulture Programs for June 2019. These programs are being offered by the Alachua County Master Gardener Volunteers, at the UF/IFAS Extension Alachua County Office (2800 NE 39 Avenue, Gainesville) unless otherwise indicated.
Alachua County Farm Bureau Food and Agriculture Festival – November 23, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Cade Museum (811 S Main St, Gainesville, FL 32601)
This event will be held Saturday, November 23rd and entrance to the museum will be free that day. There will be food trucks, exhibitors, and vendors selling Florida agricultural products. Come share in the fun and help us celebrate Florida Ag! (flyer; pdf)
Our vision for the event:
"To engage with a non-agricultural audience and educate them on the importance agriculture plays at the local, state and national level."
Agriculture Exhibitors: We are also looking for exhibitors to come and discuss their agricultural enterprises. This event will be free for you to set up an exhibit and sell merchandise, however we ask that you have a teaching/interactive element to educate consumers on the importance of agriculture.
Furthermore, if you are interested in helping sponsor this event you will find a sponsorship form attached (pdf). On it you will see a breakdown of the various levels of advertisement associated with the different levels of sponsorship.
If you have any questions, contact Kevin Korus with UF/IFAS Extension Alachua County.
