Florida Yards and Neighborhoods Program - Landscape and Ponds Class

Sally Scalera, Homeowner Horticulture agent, and myself will be offering a class on September 27th from 5:30-7pm and October 21st from 2-3:30pm on landscaping and ponds at our Cocoa office. Participants will learn about several Florida-Friendly Landscaping principles including how to reduce stormwater runoff and protect the waterfront using native aquatic plants and simple steps to a Florida-Friendly yard. I'll be showing participants the Brevard Botanical Garden pond and the native aquatic plant species that have been planted in the pond over the past year. The cost to attend the class is $12 and light snacks and refreshments will be provided. Please register at so we know how many people are attending and can provide enough snacks. I hope to see you there!
