Happy Holidays from Florida-Friendly Landscaping


The Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ team at UF/IFAS Extension Pinellas County, Doris and Jon, would like to thank you for your support this past year. Despite the circumstances, we were so happy to “see” you attending our virtual classes. For 2021, we are scheduling more interesting workshops and will offer a good mix of landscaping and environmental topics presented by us and subject matter experts. We’re kicking off the new year with two hot topics: a landscape design workshop followed by a rainwater harvesting class. See below for more information and we look forward to “seeing” you in 2021.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year!
