JUPITER, Fla. (PRWEB) October 20, 2012
Oct. 20 will be a busy day at Abacoa.
Jupiter’s premier residential, recreational and retail development will kick things off at 9 a.m. with “Get Your Hands Dirty Day,” an initiative to plant, cultivate and maintain the Abacoa Community Garden. Members of the garden, as well as volunteers, will remove weeds, lay down mulch and join in on Fall Planting Day. Herbs, flowers, fruits and vegetables will be planted, with an emphasis on organic gardening protocols and sustainability.
The public is invited to help give the garden some always-needed tender-loving care. Residency in Abacoa is not a requirement, and admission is free. In the spirit of the season, apple cider will be served. A brief seminar about composting also will be presented. The garden is near Central Boulevard and Indian Creek Parkway, next to LifeSong Community Church.
Gardening Angels, as they are called, are sponsors of the project and help make events such as Fall Planting Day a success. They include All American Asphalt, Denton Pond and Landscape, Farming Systems Research, Farriss Farms, Pulte Homes, Solid Waste Authority, Treasure Coast Irrigation and Landscaping and Valley Crest Landscape Companies.
At 10 a.m., the LifeSong Pumpkin Patch will open and will offer a day of family-friendly activities, including a bounce house, face-painting and pumpkin-painting.
When 5 p.m. rolls around, so will a crush of collector cars participating in a special installment of the Abacoa Town Center Cruise In. The monthly classic-car event, organized by South East Rods & Customs, will feature a field of 1974-and-older automobiles. The cars and customs will be parked up and down Main Street and in and around the Jupiter townhouses for sale.
The show will have a Halloween twist with special entertainment, a costume contest, a best-decorated-car award and trick-or-treating. The event runs from 5 to 9 p.m., with the highlight – a Slow Cruise – at 8:15 p.m. Raffles will be offered throughout the evening to benefit charities including Hospice of Palm Beach County, the Florida Highway Patrol Advisory Council and Toys for Tots.
