This is your resource!

Share your experience with us and we will keep a record of ideas that work (and those that do not).

Others will learn from what you’ve raised, when you planted, blooming or harvesting times.

We will organize and document this information here to  help all of the current and our future gardeners at the Ecological Center and Community Gardens as well as the surrounding neighborhood area of St. Petersburg.
