The Edison estate is quite the botanical display. Apparently he had friends around the world that sent various specimens his way and he endeavoured to grow anything that would adapt to the Ft. Myers ecology. His ficus is the largest example of that species I’ve EVER seen – it is huge! And surely you’ve seen the statue in downtown Ft. Myers depicting the three “great industrialists” of that era, Edison, Firestone, and Ford. Just south of that is the Koreshan Historic Community, an intersting, self-sufficient community of religious survivalists that bears examination. Edison worked with the Koreshans on several of their projects – I imagine there weren’t many people braving that area back before A/C.

To help you feel "at home" and "more connected" to the water.
We didn't so much "reinvent the water cycle" as we gave it a reboot for our modern times.
We cover them all: The Districts, the estuaries, the aquifers and the watersheds. Also the rain, and the dew. Plus the humidity. Did I mention evaporation? The list goes on.
