Start a community garden and composting project
Looking to make an impact in your community this year? Start by creating an edible garden and composting project!
Join UF/IFAS Extension Sarasota County for our 60-minute workshop on community gardening and composting. Many local neighborhoods, homeowner and condo associations, and schools want to implement a garden project, but aren’t sure of how to get started. Save your seat at one of three upcoming webinars:
- March 10: www.eventbrite.com/e/125178711897
- May 13: www.eventbrite.com/e/138309606757

Once registered through Eventbrite, the system will send you a confirmation email with the webinar link.
Attendees will learn the basics of starting a community edible garden and composting program. They will discover the benefits of composting, and how to build a compost system.
