Holiday Mailbox Decorating 2017
On November 15, UF/IFAS Nassau Master Gardener Carol Ann Atwood and avid holiday decorator Sylvie Baxter will conduct a Landscape Matters class on how to make your mailbox “holiday ready” using cuttings from your own yard, e.g., magnolia, spruce, pine, palmetto, pittosporum, palms, holly with berries, etc. and ornamental decor.
Admittance is free. To “make and take” your own mailbox cover with materials provided by the instructor, the fee is $20. Checks should be made out to University of Florida. Registration deadline is Friday, November 10 by 5 pm. (It is a holiday for Extension but checks may be dropped in the mail slot at the offices either in Callahan or Yulee.) Late registration fee is $30. Only ONE mailbox cover per person.
The session takes place at the Yulee Extension office on Pages Dairy Road (next to fire station #30 – go 17 North, turn left on Pages Dairy Rd.; left into fire station parking lot) from 10 am until 11:30 pm.
For more information, contact the Extension office at 530-6351. Master Gardeners are on phone duty Fridays, from 10 am until 2 pm at 530-6351, press “1” for the Yulee Extension office.
