Upcoming classes on environmentally friendly gardening

Free classes are available to help people manage their common areas and own yards. Growing plants in southwest Florida is vastly different from elsewhere in the country. These classes will provide techniques and information to help homeowners, HOA and condo association members lower their landscaping and maintenance costs while increasing the success rate of their plant materials.
