FELLSMERE COMMUNITY FARM LOSES 80% OF NEW CROPS FROM FLOODING
Florida's unique climate means that our prime growing season in the state is fall, winter and spring, unlike most other states in the nation. Vegetable and citrus crops are planted, cultivated and harvested from October through May and even June. Farmworkers travel to Florida for the long growing season. The community of farmworkers at the Farmworker Association of Florida office in Fellsmere are following the same growing season in this second year of their local farm project.
