On the Next Dimensions

Not all bugs are bad, but ridding your garden of pesky intruders will keep it beautiful all summer long. We’re bringing you a few ways to protect your plants from an invasion. We meet with a local artist who finds inspiration growing in his own backyard. Also, kids of all ages in our community have the opportunity to make beautiful music – we’ll tell you how they can get involved. Plus, a look back at Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Riders and their local ties to Tallahassee.
