St. Thomas University, North Dade

In March 2002, the Campus & Community Alliance for North Dade voted to adopt a Florida Yards Initiative. As the first step in this initiative, FYN teamed up with Dr. Elisabeth Ferrero of St. Thomas University (STU) to offer a free 20-hour Florida Yard Advisor Apprentice Training program. Held on nine Saturdays, from mid-September through early December, the participants in this training course (STU students and residents of the North Dade community) attended presentations to learn about the FYN concepts, and also worked diligently to plan and install an FYN Demonstration Landscape on the STU campus. Below are just a few photos of the installation process. Special thanks to Dr. Iannone and Fr. Blackwell of St. Thomas University, and Shirley Gibson of the Alliance, for their assistance in obtaining $1,200.00 in grant funding to purchase tools and plants for the project.
