On this episode of Local Routes, our Ecology intern, Chloe Thompson, helps the Apalachee Audubon Society organize a cleanup of Lake Elberta. Thirty-seven volunteers picked up forty bags of trash on a wildlife-filled day.
We also discover that composting can be a cost-effective way to build soil using material you might otherwise throw out. Our friends at Turkey Hill Farm Tallahassee and the UF/IFAS Leon County Extension teach us the basics.
Next, we speak to local doctors from Capital Regional Medical Center and the FSU College of Medicine. They discuss the events, teachings and beliefs that have helped mold them into the medical professionals they are today.
