The Florida Strawberry Growers Association was a third-time exhibitor at “Fresh From Florida” Weekend during this year’s International Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot. People loved learning more about Florida strawberries and getting recipes.
The FSGA is a member-supported organization, with funding coming from strawberry producers. Through the
