On August 24, 2017, the Rockfield Gardens received an email that opened up an exciting opportunity for business. The email she was teaching at the time was from Amanda Rose Newton, an anthrologist and beekeeping teacher who wanted to partner with gardeners to encourage your student’s desire to create a pollen garden. Newton moved from Washington, DC, to Florida to work on STEM education at the Florida Institute of Technology. Newton has the right to work with your student in a benefit-oriented partnership.
Sign up now: Join the Rockfield Gardens in Florida on September 27 For a non-stop workshop, you will learn all about working with outside vendors, nonprofits and other organizations to create stores in your stores.
Now, Newton is a member of the East Florida State College (EFSC) Gardening Program and a 60-year-old Garden Center Information and Education Specialists team that conducts moonlighting in Rockfield Gardens on Sunday. Not only is the Labor Education Revolution a rookie garden, but she is also working with her EFSC colleague Scott Herber to create 5 hectares of land across the street as a “living classroom” or classroom garden.
Newton and her EFSC students will complete a summer semester that includes Greenhouse Operations and Management as well as Horticultural Introduction 2 2. The students are currently working with Relius and Rockfield Gardens and Customer Service Manager Female Rhodes (which is the current fruit tree planted on the property). To preserve the part of the land for its own greenhouse work, Rhodes roots). Students should present the local design using the current installation and plaster as a final project. Over a eight-week period, students will learn how to load, cut down, irrigate trees, use tools such as scissors, compost dispensers, bag compressors, and weeds, as well as explore the basics of orchards.
An exciting new addition for spring is beekeeping! This course teaches students the principles of beekeeping, the year of beekeeping, bee biology, bee health evaluation, how to make beehives, how to set up beehives, and how to make minor repairs. The final “laboratory practical” students successfully lit smokers, entered the hive, and identified workers, drones, and queens.
And a new, horticultural research credit this fall. This course is an independent study in which students choose a topic of interest (this spring students try to establish insects by working with useful insects) and are participating in the EFSC undergraduate research exhibition.
Finally, next summer, Newton and EFSC students will be implementing a range of hydroponics classes in which students will learn how to build and operate alternative growth systems, food security and land conservation.
The benefits of RockCard Gardens In many ways from this partnership, they have been the most versatile, fun, and value-based resource since the acquisition of the land by Rocklet Gardens founder Harry Whitte in the early 90’s. In addition, due to its close relationship with the College at Rockfield Gardens, the Garden Center attracts five loving and energetic students who are students of the EFSC Gardening Program. Newton also inspires more experienced rocker gardeners. She is working to start a podcast with Spearheads Rockledge Gardens’ Boozy Botanicals Bookclub, a 20-year-old Arji veteran, where RG team members and customers discuss gardening-inspired literature on gardening-inspired cocktails.

This small part of the Rocklist, located at the center of Ukraine 1, has developed its identity as a Brevard County “Garden District,” and the Rocklit Gardens benefit from EFSC efforts.
The Rockwell Gardens and EFSC Department of Gardening enjoy long-term relationships for each organization to learn from each other and to find each other to develop a greener, healthier, more beautiful population. Place.
