The objective of the UF organic gardens is to teach and learn organic gardening principles, the use of non-residual pesticides and natural fertilizers, and how to achieve a natural balance between material put into the garden and material removed. Additionally, the UF Organic Gardens provide a great place to grow your own vegetables and flowers, relax, and meet new people!Quick FAQs
