Featured Producer: Sundew Gardens
We’ve been growing our gardens here at Sundew Gardens since 1983. Starting in the mid 1980’s, we’ve been marketing our produce through several “Community Market Gardening” sources. Sundew Gardens was certified organic in the 1990’s, and although no longer certified, we continue to use natural and practical non-synthetic soil improvements and pest controls.
All of our produce is grown in real soil, improved with natural mineral, ocean borne, and compost fertilizers (no hydroponic salts). The soil only get better over time since we use only sustainable, natural methods. We grow a wide selection of vegetables, herbs, citrus, blueberries, and chickens for eggs.
Sundew Gardens also markets our produce through our U-Pick “Harvest Gardening” program. See my Florida gardening column in the Winter Park Observer, East Orlando Sun or Seminole Voice newspapers. Please visit the Sundew Gardens facebook page for information on our daily projects, harvest, tours, and classes we offer. Hope to see you in the garden, Tom Carey.

Fall Farm Tour
What: Seminole Springs Antique Rose and Herb Farm
When: Sunday, November 11, 2012 @ 10 a.m. until 12 noon
Where: Eustis, FL
(an hour’s drive from downtown Orlando)
We will meet once again in Eustis, FL to visit with a third grower, Seminole Springs Antique Rose and Herb Farm, who partners with Homegrown. While we are there, Farmer Traci Anderson will take us on a tour of this family run nursery, and provide us with a mini workshop on growing and using herbs.
Handouts will be included, so, be certain to make a reservation <email@example.com> since space is limited. For those that like active participation mixed with comedy, Traci will give us an opportunity to keep up with the potting machine conveyor belt.
After the tour, participants are invited to picnic on the grounds, visit the gift shed, and share a glass of herb tea. As this is Veteran’s Day, please, feel free to invite a Veteran in your life to attend this farm tour as your guest.
To make a reservation for you and/or any accompanying guests, please contact: Jackie McFadden, firstname.lastname@example.org, 404-571-9602, or sign-up at the Homegrown Store.

We ask for donations of any spare art materials (paint brushes, paint, fabric, etc), scrap metal, Christmas lights, or even some old newspaper! Whatever you have and are willing to donate would be greatly appreciated so we can share this work of art with you!
