Join Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful as we create a community garden in South Seminole Heights!
The Environmental Education Center sits on the eastern shore of the Hillsborough River and is part of the Seminole Heights Neighborhood. Community volunteers will work with Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful to install two hydroponic grow towers, build and plant garden beds and a pollinator garden. They will also plant fruit trees and install a community compost area. The gardens and compost area will then be used by neighbors, volunteers and students as they participate in hands-on activities and learn how to grow fresh, healthy food and learn about nutrition and healthy eating.
