Ramble 2011

Friday, November 11, 2011 – Sunday, November 13, 2011
9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Now into its seventh decade, the Ramble is still going strong. The annual festival at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is billed as the largest plant sale in South Florida, with more than 15,000 plants up for grabs.

And that’s just the tropical ornamentals the Garden is selling. If you’re not into that, there will be plants for your vegetable garden too. Bee Heaven Farm will be in the Greenmarket area again this year with lots of heirloom tomato seedlings — and avocados, honey, herbs, luffas and other goodies. Yes, there’s plenty of seedlings left, so if you missed getting some at the Edible Garden Festival, now is your chance. Come visit and join the fun!

Location:

Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden
10901 Old Cutler Road
Coral Gables FL 33156

Admission: Free for Fairchild Members and children 5 and under.
Non-members: $25 for adults, $18 for seniors 65 and up and $12 for children 6-17.

The 70th annual Fairchild Ramble is this weekend. If you haven’t been, it’s a huge, amazing event, with plant sales, food vendors, a calliope — and my favorite, the Farmer’s Greenmarket.

Redland Organics will be there, of course. If you missed out on getting tomato starts at the Edible Garden Festival not too long ago, or you want to get more, you’re in luck. Farmer Margie will have smaller assortment of tomato plants, along with arugula and collard starts, flowers including tithonia (Mexican sunflower), and a varied assortment of organic fruits, vegetables and herbs.

IMPORTANT — Redland Organics will NOT be at the Pinecrest Gardens Green Market this Sunday! But, Farmer Margie will be back the following weekend.
