COMMUNITY DAY at USDA Subtropical Agricultural Research Station (Chapman Field)
Luscious Lychees will be featured at the USDA Open House on June 4, 2011
The loveable and luscious lychee is the featured plant at this year’s USDA-ARS Open House at Chapman Field. Come join us and taste different varieties of lychees grown at this USDA research facility. See how experiments are done during lab tours, and take an air-conditioned 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, and educational booths that will reveal many more resources that are available to you!
This open house is FREE and open to the public!
