City of Tallahassee’s Solar Farm Groundbreaking Event
Remember when we first began talking with our City about solar? It all started in 2013! And today we’re very proud of our City’s progress and solid commitment to solar.
This is a major milestone, and we had a great turnout of Sustainable Tallahassee members at the groundbreaking celebration on Tuesday, May 30. Congratulations to the City, to Sustainable Tallahassee, League of Women Voters, and ReThink Energy Florida for this accomplishment!

'Tis The Season When Invasive Plants Take Over . . . .
How do we know if a plant in our yard – or a plant we consider purchasing – is invasive? Read “Know How to Choose Florida-Friendly Plants” by Mark Tancig, Extension Agent with UF/IFAS Leon County Extension. He gives us a resource for finding out about safe and invasive plants for every area in the state.
Here's an invasive we need to watch for: Coral Ardisia is a very striking and beautiful plant with red berries and dark evergreen leaves. It's prevalent in our area - spreads rapidly and will choke out native plants, as you can see in this photo.
Carefully remove berries, bag them, and dispose in trash can, not in your yard compost. Then dig up the plant's long root, bag it, and dispose in trash can.
We see Coral Ardisia popping up everywhere, so please educate your friends and neighbors!
