Combatting the Oriental Fruit Fly in South Dade

The Oriental Fruit Fly has invaded South Dade and the State of Florida. County, state and federal agencies are taking aggressive action to fight this pest. Area growers know that their participation in the quarantine, which prevents them from moving fruits and vegetables out of the area, is necesarry to save our farms into the future.

Florida Agricultural Commissioner Adam Putnam declared a state of agricultural emergency and placed traps throughout South Dade. We continue to monitor the situation and will be sending updates on Facebook and Twitter.

I want to thank our community for your patience and cooperation as we work to eradicate the Oriental Fruit Fly. We will work with farmers to seek support and help deal with the economic hardships.

2015 Impact Grant winners

The District 8 Impact Grant is awarded to community based organizations that have demonstrated a commitment to advocacy, civic engagement, and service. This year, we awarded 13 organizations small grants ranging from $2,500 to $5,000. These organizations provide direct services and have also expanded their reach to impact policy.

While each grant recipient presented a unique project or proposed to tackle a unique issue, they all had to strictly adhere to the overall advocacy and civic engagement component of the District 8 Impact Grant program. The awards totaled $48,000.
