More than 20 Lee County Schools have their artwork on display for visitors to enjoy in the Heritage Garden. Edison Ford invites student groups each year to participate in the annual event, in collaboration with the Lee Art Educator’s Association.

Thomas and Mina Edison loved their winter retreat and adorned it with flowers, plants and trees used for research purposes, as well as aesthetics. The theme for 2015 is “Flowers in the Garden.” Each art piece was made with recycled materials and with materials that can withstand the Southwest Florida environment. This is a FREE event and open to the public.

List of schools participating:  Bayshore Elementary, Challenger Middle, Cypress Lake High School Center for the Arts, Cypress Lake Middle, Edison Park Creative and Expressive Arts School, Fort Myers High, Lehigh Senior High, Mariner High, Mirror Lakes Elementary, Pine Island Elementary, Rayma C. Page Elementary, St. Andrew Catholic School, St. Francis Xavier Catholic School, Tice Elementary, Tortuga Preserve Elementary, Trafalgar Elementary, Trafalgar Middle, Varsity Lakes Middle, Veterans Park Academy for the Arts.
