The Last few weeks at The Center for Subtropical Affairs

We have been visiting the Center for Subtropical Affairs for a few weeks now. We would like to share a compiled video of a few of our visits. Featured in this video- we are getting acquainted with the Center, planting seeds, transplanting vegetable plants, and mixing the substrate to put into jars where students will be growing their own mushrooms! We will be posting more videos in the coming weeks and soon, student produced work. Thanks for All Your Support.

Nature Links Announces Partnership with Center for Subtropical Affairs

What an amazing first day at @centerforsubtropicalaffairs! We toured the Center and planted moringa, pigeon peas and pride of Barbados flowers. We can’t wait to return and practice environmental stewardship through the integration of persons with developmental delays into our community. #autism#developmentaldisabilities#disabilityawarenessmiami

We will be going to the Center on a weekly basis to learn about Ecology, Urban Farming, Landscape Design related to our South Florida Environment. As we progress we will learn about their Farmers Market Program and transitioning students into volunteer/work opportunities at Center.
