Gainsville Florida


Sorry about the distractions. Here’s another segment of our urban farming trip report.

Here’s Heather and Pavel near fig trees, hibiscus in Gainsville. Pavel took a master gardening course and is pretty into gardening. He helps with the Edible Plant Project and instigates community gardens. We took one tour of an abandoned blueberry farm will soon become a farm for an organic ag group. As we walked around the amazingly lush, overgrown area, I couldn’t help but imagine myself there growing huge fields of organic pineapples, bananas, papayas, tropical edible vines, mangoes. Tropical fruit–I know nothing about its cultivation, but I do love to eat it. For manure input, I think it would be a swell idea to have goats or flocks of guinea fowl.
