There’s always something special going on at Rockledge Gardens!
April 2021 – All Month Long!
April is Earth Month in the Gardens!
Rather than a single day celebration for Earth Day, Rockledge Gardens has committed to a month-long recognition of the importance of being good stewards of our planet. Each Saturday in April we are hosting a different local organization working towards building a more sustainable future here in Brevard. Come meet these organizations from 10-1 each Saturday in April–or tune in to our social media around 10:30 on Saturday mornings for a 5-10 minute livestream to learn about the impact these organizations are having on our environment. Plus! Look out for a spotlight on plants that are native to Florida each week in April on our blog!
- April 3: Restore our Shores
- April 10: Marine Resources Council
- April 17: Environmentally Endangered Lands Program
- April 24: University of Florida, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS)
