We started today’s program talking about our upcoming local Bicycle Month in March. Our guests were some of the organizers: Karen Kress with the Tampa Downtown Partnership and Julie Bond with the Center for Urban Transportation Research at the University of South Florida.

Bike Month activities will include biking contests, workshops, races, and other events throughout the month. Visit Tampa Bay Cycle for the complete schedule. The main safety issue that came up was how dangerous it is to ride against traffic.

Next up, we talked with our local community garden expert, Andrea Hildebran, with the Bartlett Park Community Garden in St Pete. Andrea’s mission is to promote the local community garden network through her excellent website Green Florida.
