UF/IFAS Extension offices across Florida are educating virtually on topics ranging from food safety, agriculture industry recovery, and disinfecting practices to Florida-Friendly Landscaping™, water conservation, and growing food at home.
While your local county Extension office will certainly have programs of interest, you might also want to explore some of the programs from other counties, as they each have their own staff with unique expertise. Though we miss educating our communities in person, one silver lining of this new virtual programming model is that residents and businesses now have access to hundreds of programs from across the state.
Below is a list of links to program listings from our neighboring counties, along with some examples of programs they offer. Take a minute to browse each of these and sign up for programs that interest you (and share this link with your friends so they can do the same).
