Florida Friendly Landscaping and your Cooperative Extension Service programs

Share this:

On Monday’s WMNF Sustainable Living Program we talked about Florida Friendly Landscaping, the Water Wise Awards program and other related topics.

Our guests were Lynn Barber, Hillsborough County’s Florida Friendly IFAS Extension Agent and Brian Niemann, Pinellas County’s Florida Friendly IFAS Extension Agent.

There are University of Florida (UF) Institute of Food Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) Extension Offices in every county in Florida and each one focuses on what’s happening in their region. These are great resources, with different agents and departments to serve each county’s needs.

Our guests’ expertise deal mainly with the concerns and questions of urban homeowners.  If you can’t visit your Cooperative Extension office there is great information easily accessed on-line at the EDIS (Electronic Data Information System) IFAS site and each of our counties Extension office websites.

You can listen to the show on demand here, and also see all of the related posts about past guests and topics.
