Broward County Celebrates 22 Years of “Water Matters”, March 9th.

Broward does it best!

Coffea arabica – True coffee plants will be one of the fruit tree selections at Water Matters Day.

Every year for the past 22, Broward County, FL has been educating its citizens on the importance of water conservation with Water Matters Day.
This year, it falls on March 9th, from 9 AM – 3 PM at Tree Tops Park, in Davie.

Water Matters Day is a signature event in Broward County where any resident of the county can come by and learn about water conservation, creating a Wildlife Habitat, Florida Friendly Landscaping, and of course TREES!  After visiting educational booths, each household will receive 2 trees to plant in their yards (one can be a fruit tree).  Check out these links to learn more about the programs and the plants.  You must be a Broward County resident to participate.

Trees make the difference.

With deep concerns about the urban heat island effect and urban food deserts, along with the water quality issues, Broward County strives to promote solutions.  Planting trees is one of the most important ways we can all combat climate change while making our cities more beautiful and healthy.

UF/IFAS Extension will be there.

As in previous years, UF/IFAS Broward Extension will be there to help educate about the trees, provide recipes for the fruit trees, and Master Gardener Volunteers will also be there to assist residents with their selections.

If you are a Broward County resident, don’t miss this amazing event, and a chance to get two free trees.
