Happy New Year 2013 from the FYN team!
I am Guillermo Salazar, FYN Agent in Miami-Dade County. This year like every year the FYN team has been working in bringing new exciting water and environmental conservation programs for our residents in Miami-Dade. As part of our Florida Yards & Neighborhoods series this season we have scheduled several rain barrel workshops, outdoor tabling events and several interesting classes and so much more!
We gear the new year with two very interesting FYN classes “Urban Florida Friendly landscape Design” on January 15, 2013 6:30 p.m. at Miami Beach Regional Library developed for people that love nature and plants and want to bring them into their home but might have no space or space constraints, little or no irrigation whatsoever and need some ideas. This program will teach you how to do efficient container gardening , design with low maintenance and water intake plant material, appropriate plant selection and the use of low volume irrigation in prior to achieve your own little private paradise.
Two additional classes in “Florida Friendly Landscaping” were created to be a part of Baynanza 2013 in partnership with Miami Dade County. These classes would be a wonderful opportunity to learn and go over the 9 Florida Friendly landscaping principles.
Whether you are new to Florida or have lived here all of your life, learn how to protect Florida's environment and save water. Get started in your own back yard by implementing these valuable principles and learn to landscape and garden the Florida way - the smart way to grow! Florida Friendly Landscaping classes will take place on March 9 and March23, 2013 at the Deering Estate at Cutler both sessions starting at 10:00 a.m. and as an added bonus both classes will end with the amazing opportunity to acquire your own rain barrel available for purchase. Registration is required for both events for the free class and for rain barrel purchase.
