Want free tomato plants? Broward residents invited to join UF/IFAS gardening project

Ok, gardeners, here's your chance to have some fun AND receive free tomato plants! (But you must live in Broward County, sorry!)

Broward residents are invited to participate in a science project from the University of Florida/IFAS program for a chance to get the red, juicy freebies.

Participants need a small sunny place outside for their plants, and they'll report their experiences with the tomato plants via email or Zoom.

The project, from March through June 2022, is designed to assist organizers in determining ways to enhance yield from food production at home. 

If interested, you need to fill out a questionnaire online by clicking here. Those selected receive further instructions on how to proceed.
