Apollo Beach Community Forest Garden

Apollo Beach Community Forest Garden

Location Apollo Beach, Florida
Growing since August 2019
Installation performed by Apollo Beach Garden Club members, volunteers, Third insight design and nursery

Just over two years ago, I created a free program at the Apollo Beach Park for gardeners of all ages, skill levels and those who are interested in edible plants, epiphytes, and natives. This free program has turned into a non-profit entity with over 50 members and functions with a board and officers. The club meets at the Apollo Beach Park on the third Tuesday of the month and has just received the permission to create a forest garden in a vacant green space at the recreation center. Third insight design will create the site map, analysis and will be responsible for designing the multi-use area for rented garden spaces, Florida native pollinator areas, sub-tropical and tropical fruit trees, alternative technologies and most importantly an educational food forest garden.
