Horticulture Workshops and Events in Clay County – March 2024

March is a busy month for our horticultural programs as the gardens wake up and we get to work updating our demonstration areas at the office, answer the spring gardening questions of our communities, and go out to educate around the county. Even more exciting is the preparations underway for the 2024 Clay County Fair. Here is a listing of our upcoming events this March:

  • UF/IFAS Extension Clay County Master Gardener Volunteers host a help desk every month of the Orange Park Farmers Market at the Orange Park Town Hall at the corner of Kingsley and Route 17. The event runs from 10am to 3pm and it is usually held on the first Sunday of each month. Come visit us on Sunday March 3rd with your plant questions!
  • March, 25th, 11:30am to 12:30pm – Monthly How-To Series, topic “How to Fertilize”. Free course located at our office at 2463 SR 16W, Green Cove Springs, FL 32043.
  • March 26th, 6:00pm- Master Gardener Library Series at the Orange Park Library, class is entitled “How to Attract Butterflies, Birds, and Bees to Your Garden. Free class open to all.
  • We host several online Horticulture courses, listed at https://ifas.catalog.instructure.com/?category%5Bid%5D=138894&category%5Bname%5D=UF%2FIFAS%20Extension%20Clay%20County .
  • Finally, while it opens next month remember to come see our UF/IFAS Extension Clay County Master Gardener Volunteers during the fair in both the Horticulture Exhibit building at our landscaping display and in the garden in the Early Florida Village. They will be happy to answer any gardening questions you have and let you know about these amazing displays and exhibits.
