12/25/17 Grimal Grove
Grimal Grove is a rare tropical fruit park in Big Pine Key, Florida. Some of the only species of trees in the world are found on this property. Hurricane Irma hit big pine key on September 10, 2017 and Grimal Grove is still trying to rebuild. Patrick Garvey did not evacuate, despite warnings, to prepare for the storm and save as many of the rare trees as possible. They still lost over 100 trees.
