Friday Feature: UF Ag Students Pitch In with Irma Recovery

Friday Feature:  UF Ag Students Pitch In with Irma Recovery

UF/IFAS Extension teamed up with students and faculty from the University of Florida College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, and volunteers from the community to help a Pasco County blueberry farmer following Hurricane Irma.

Last week the featured video highlighted the terrible damage to the Citrus Industry in Southwest Florida caused by Hurricane Irma.  The damage from this storm was immense, but people all over the state are banding together to help people in need.  This week’s featured video, published by UF/IFAS News, shares how more than 200 volunteers from the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, and the local community gathered on a hot, windy Saturday to save thousands of blueberry bushes damaged by Hurricane Irma on Frogmore Fresh Farm in Pasco County.

Read the IFAS News article for more details on what took place:
