Two Free Florida-friendly Gardening Workshops in September 2017

Irrigation efficiency

Citrus County Utilities Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ Program is offering a free gardening workshop on September 5, 2017 from 2:00-3:30 pm.  Landscape irrigation is supplemental, but often uses 50-70 % of total residential water consumption. Irrigation practices such as seasonal scheduling, catch can calibration and selection of drought tolerant plants are essential to creating a sustainable and water conserving landscape.  Classes are held at the Citrus County Extension Service building located at 3650 W Sovereign Path in Lecanto.  Please contact Steven Davis at (352) 527-5708 to confirm your participation.
