Kanapaha Fall Flower and Garden Show Sunday, October 13, 2019

$80.00

Join us for a wonderful trip to Kanapaha Botanical Gardens (Gainesville, Florida). The gardens are comprised of 24 major collections visually accessible from a 1 ½ mile paved walkway. These include the state’s largest public display of bamboos and the largest herb garden in the Southeast. Some of Kanapaha’s gardens are organized taxonomically; others demonstrate principles of ecology or natural selection.

On our way home we will make a stop at Trader Joe’s for your shopping pleasure.

Trader Joe’s is well-known to its fans for low prices on unique food items, ranging from cookie butter to turkey corn dogs. The chain is also known for its quirky culture. Employees, easy to spot in their Hawaiian shirts, go out of their way to be helpful, and plastic lobsters are used to decorate stores.
