Coral Springs Garden Club Members Grow Edible Forest
The food forest has many fruits, vegetables and root systems that are hard to pronounce; hailing from places as far-flung as Asia, Hawaii and the Caribbean.
"One day I found a man in army fatigues standing in the food forest, just staring and staring at the trees," Gulko reminisced, "he told me he's from the Dominican Republic and loves to visit this place because it reminds him of home."
The gardens with benches and paths
Compliments like these are owed to an able-bodied (and sometimes sweaty) team of garden club members and volunteers. The city pays for watering and donated the bigger trees. A local landscaping company drops off its mulch, which helps gardeners make rich and nutrient soil. Normally, they'd have to pay to do that, but in the food forest, it's a win-win.
Boy scouts, Eagle Scouts the Daisies, and a Girl Scout troop, have all been instrumental in making shade houses, benches and gravel paths for the garden.
Once, the Coral Springs Fire Department, performing a drill in the nearby lot, trained its hoses on the flower beds in good fun. Gulko said the garden is a great way to make the whole community feel more connected, boost morale.
"After Hurricane Irma, most of our trees were down, and I remember looking up at the universe and saying ‘I'm done', and then out of nowhere the new rotary club president, Scott Jablon appeared and asked how he could help.
They soon rebounded with help from Jablon and garden club members.
Gulko, a mental health therapist, said studying the Earth's natural systems has made her a better psychologist. She loves to offer visitors a cool drink, and, if you're lucky, a shaving from a sugar cane plant. She's learned a lot about growing both food and drink.
"I make my own teas from some of these trees," she said, and added that while she is most interested in the botanical aspects of gardening, it's different for everyone.

Silent auction to benefit displaced Puna residents
Each year, the Hilo Orchid Society hosts a silent auction during the annual orchid show to raise money for the Yasuji Takasaki Memorial Scholarship that supports students at University of Hawaii at Hilo.
Silent auction chairperson Leslie Hayes-Cullins announced that this year 100 percent of the proceeds from the fundraiser will instead go to disaster relief for neighbors in lower Puna.
"Looking at the news every day about how our community is suffering from the volcanic eruption made me think that all our local business partners who donate items to the auction would want to help with disaster relief this year," Hayes-Cullins said.
Lower Puna is home to many of the island's orchid nurseries who are now scrambling to relocate their operations. Orchid society President Dana Culleney says the group's board leaped at the chance to help neighbors who have lost everything.
"Because of the past generosity of local businesses who donate to the scholarship fund, we have the resources to continue supporting students next year even if this year's auction goes to disaster relief," Culleney said. "We hope this year's ‘Kaleidoscope of Orchids' show helps bring the community together for a wonderfully positive event in such difficult times."

Beauty blooms in Idaho's backcountry in the spring and summer
Well, not entirely. In fact, there are more native, wild orchid species growing in the Gem State than Hawaii — and you can see them for yourself this spring and summer, if you know what to look for and are willing to do the legwork.Lynn Kinter, lead botanist for the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, remembers the exact moment she spied her first orchids in the wild, as a botany student at the University of Idaho.“I was on the Elk Creek Falls trail near Elk River,” Kinter recalled. “It was a bunch of fairy slippers — the little pink calypso orchids, Calypso bulbosa. They’re striking in terms of their bright pink color and unusual shape, and so different compared to other wildflowers I was used to seeing. And the fairy slipper has a faint vanilla scent that helps it attract pollinators.”As thrilled as she was by this discovery, her next thought was to leave them alone.“I’d been trained in a plant identification course taught by Doug Henderson,” she said. “Part of our coursework was to make a small plant collection — but he had said, ‘Anyone who collects an orchid will get an F,’ because he wanted them protected.”Indeed, seven of the 28 native orchid species in Idaho are on the state’s rare plant list, and one is considered threatened under the federal Endangered Species Act.Rarity isn’t the only reason to resist ...
