We enjoyed two visits this past week from Hope Clubhouse of Southwest Florida. Their second visit included the gift of a variety of plants and seedlings that will improve our garden. Plants included sweet potatoes, wild coffee, mint, Brazilian spinach, pigeon peas, tamarind, chia and ktuck. Tree seedlings included banana, dragon fruit, papaya, moringa (“Tree of Life”), jack fruit and last but not least, the peanut butter fruit tree.
Hope Clubhouse excels in gardening and the “Farm to Table” approach. We hope to emulate their success!
The Academy shares periodic member/staff visits with Hope Clubhouse. We are lucky to have a sister clubhouse program in our region. We plan to send a team down for a visit in late summer.
