Palm Trees for the Home Landscape – December 1, from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. This is a Zoom webinar.
One of the many things people think about when thinking about Florida is palm trees. Palms have a tropical look, but due to our cooler climate, Florida has a limited number of palms that thrive here, and they require special maintenance practices. This webinar about palms explains the different species and maintenance requirements for having a happy, healthy palm in landscapes.

There is no registration fee, but participants must register online (those needing assistance with registering can call the Extension Office at 352-955-2402). The webinar is limited to 100 participants.  

Horticultural Therapy & the Healing Power of Gardens – December 15, from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. This is a Zoom webinar.

Gardening provides powerful therapeutic impacts. In this webinar Master Gardener Volunteer and Director of Therapeutic Horticulture at Wilmot Gardens Leah Diehl teaches about the healing power of gardens.
