USDA Community Day at Chapman Field

March 16, 2013 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

| Free

The fabulous flowers of south Florida are featured at this year’s USDAARS Community Day at Chapman Field. Come join us at this USDA research facility, see how agricultural research and experiments are done during lab tours, and take an airconditioned bus tour of the experimental groves and extensive plant collections.

Over the years, this station has been responsible for the introduction and/or development of many of our favorite plants and fruits here in South Florida, and this is an opportunity to learn more about the many contributions that scientists at this facility have made, and continue to make, for the benefit of our community and our nation.

Also included in this event are  plant sales, food vendors, demonstrations, short presentations, and educational booths that will reveal many more resources that are available to you! You may adopt a free plant to take home (limited supplies, first come first serve).

This open house is FREE and open to the public!

When:  Saturday, March 16, 10 am – 3 pm (The Friends of Chapman Field, a local support group,

will have its annual meeting at 9 am, open to the public)

Where:  USDAARS, 13601 Old Cutler Rd, Miami. Located between Pinecrest and Palmetto Bay.
