Center for Viticultural Sciences
The mission of the Center for Viticultural Sciences and Small Fruit Research is to conduct research and provide service and support that will help the viticulture industry in Florida to become a viable industry (Florida Viticulture Policy Act, 1978).
Advances in both veterinary medicine technology and technique are the fuel firing the increased demand for well-trained individuals to work as veterinary technologists.
A Growing Movement
Nonetheless, the United States is on the verge of a renaissance of community gardening and urban farming, with some careful cultivation. Local governments need to take the lead in recognizing the potential of gardening to help address many of the physical, social, and economic ills affecting their neighborhoods. But local governments won't be able to do it all. Private foundations must increase funding for gardens, and federal programs will need to be expanded and reoriented in support of gardening. But most importantly, of course, is the ongoing commitment of millions of gardeners, ablaze with the desire to gain the power and dignity of growing their own food.
