  • December Garden Of the Month

    Twenty five years ago, Nolen and Daisy Freeman’s yard was named the Cedar Key Garden of the Month, but their yard has evolved quite a bit since then. The first award came after they artfully arranged 91 beautifully planted pots. However, the plants were not native or tolerant of Cedar Key’s weather. During cold snaps, all 91 plants had to be brought inside their home to wait out the unforgiving frosts - even if it spoiled their vacation plans. Something just had to change.

  • Conservation Corner - Promoting Energy Awareness, Conservation and Sustainability

    As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words… so, I’ll try to keep this short (and sweet!).

    If you’ve looked around town on Monday mornings before Waste Pro has had a chance to make their rounds there are some amazing sites to see. As reported last month, nearly 75% of occupied households are actively participating in the new trash/recycling program and we have already seen decline in the monthly tonnage of trash hauled off the island….. but, we’ve still got a ways to go.
