I am visiting Gainesville for the first time and was wondering if anyone
can recommend any event / facilities to visit related to organic matter
recycling, composting - verniconposting or green energy .

I'll be there Oct 10-13. I did some postdoc work with an extension office
of UF in Alfred, in 2006 but never made it to Gainesville!
