Seminar and Rebates Usher in Spring Gardening Season

Post Date:02/14/2020 4:32 PM

Co-sponsored by the City of Melbourne, the Florida Friendly Landscaping Seminar that was held on Feb. 8 was very successful. We estimate 425 were in attendance. In one of the reviews, the person said they had been many times before and this was the best. Another said it was a wonderful event – “I’m new to Florida and trying to learn this unique way of gardening.” And still another said, “I love this seminar. I come every year.”

Besides these comments, we received hundreds more with lots of other positive feedback and good suggestions for future topics. In addition, from the comments, it appears that people really seemed to be interested in native landscaping and how it attracts birds and other wildlife. Now is a great time of year for residents put that knowledge to work in their gardens and to get a rain barrel and/or a composter for the gardening benefits they provide. The City offers rebates for both to residents inside the city limits.
