Field Trip to Martin County Farms

Martin County Farms is a wholesale native plant nursery located in Palm City that grows plants for mitigation and restoration throughout the state. Jennifer Pelham will take us behind the scenes and provide an arborist's point of view as we survey trees growing in pots in the nursery.  Located at  3449 SW Honey Terrace, Palm City, FL 34990, the farm has rough terrain and is not set up for public visits.

Be sure to wear closed-toe shoes and hat, and bring your own water. Arrive at 8:50 for check in.
