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!

Hello BESTers,

Recycle Florida Today is hosting a Lunch and Learn event at the Sweetwater Organic Community Farm this Thursday (October 8th) from 9:45-1:00.  We will be touring their composting and organic farming operation.  Registration is $35 for RFT members and $50 for non-RFT members.  Lunch will be provided.  Please see the link below for more details and registration.  This is a great opportunity to see the full compost cycle from organic waste to organic produce!


Hope to see you there,
